DID YOU KNOW? 

■ Carolina is one of only three teams in the country to win its 
last five bowl games. 

■ Carolina is the only school in the ACC to have at least 
one player taken in every NFL Draft since 1973. 

■ Carolina has produced 16 first-round picks, including 
both Julius Peppers (No. 2 overall) and Ryan Sims (No. 6 
overall) in 2002. 

■ Carolina has posted a winning season in 11 of the 
past 12 years - the best 12-year stretch in school his- 
tory. 



■ Carolina is the only school in the ACC to ever 
earn a bowl berth after starting a season 0-3 - and 
it has done it twice in the past four years. 

■ The graduation rate for all NFL players is 
approximately 30 percent. Carolina's NFL players 
have a graduation rate of nearly 70 percent. 




■ Carolina has been the dominant program in the state of North Carolina, win- 
ning 37 of the last 42 games against in-state rivals Wake Forest, Duke, NC 
State and East Carolina. The Tar Heels have a 12-game winning streak over 
Duke, have won 10 of the last 12 matchups against Wake Forest, have won 
eight of nine against NC State and are 7-2 all-time vs. East Carolina. 



I In the next decade, Carolina will play five teams that either won or played 
for the national title, including Texas, Virginia Tech, Miami, Notre Dame and 
Colorado. 



I Carolina head coach John Bunting won more games (eight) in his first 
season at North Carolina than any other first-year coach in school his- 
tory. 



■ Carolina has appeared in a postseason bowl game in eight of the 
last 10 seasons. In the ACC, only Florida State has played in 
more bowl games in the last decade. 



■ Five Tar Heel defensive linemen have been drafted in the 
first round of the NFL Draft in the last five years - Julius 
Peppers and Ryan Sims in 2002, Ebenezer Ekuban in 
1999, Greg Ellis and Vonnie Holliday in 1998. No 
school in the country can match that accomplish- 
ment.

UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA STATEMENT ON GAMBLING 



The mission of the Department of Athletics is to 
sponsor a broad-based athletic program that provides 
educational and athletic opportunities for young men 
and women to grow and develop. In keeping with the 
Department's mission and the University's commit- 
ment to educational interests, competitive athletic 
programs, and integrity in all areas, the Department 
of Athletics strongly condemns the influence of gam- 
bling on intercollegiate athletics. 

Student gambling is a significant issue on college 
campuses. Student-athlete involvement in gambling 
has produced many tragic situations, both for student- 
athletes and the universities they represent. Student- 



athletes often compete in contests that generate inter- 
est from those involved in gambling and. possibly, 
organized crime. If given the opportunity, those inter- 
ests will not hesitate to exploit the position student- 
athletes hold on college campuses. As such, the 
University of North Carolina is firmly opposed to all 
forms of gambling and bribery related to intercolle- 
giate athletics. 

To fulfill its educational obligation, the 
Department provides a gambling education program 
to all its student-athletes and departmental staff mem- 
bers. This statement and the educational program are 
reflections of the Department's commitment to keep- 



ing intercollegiate athletics free from the influences 
of gambling and its related activities. 

The Department requires its staff members and 
student-athletes to adhere to NCAA, state and federal 
laws regarding gambling. In the interest of fair com- 
petition and the growth and development of student- 
athletes, the Department strongly urges its friends 
and supporters to refrain from gambling/betting on 
contests involving collegiate competition and to abide 
by state and federal laws.

Tar Heels Look To Take The Next 
Step After Successful Season In John 
Bunting's First Year As Carolina's 
Head Coach. 



On the heels of one of the most 
impressive coaching debuts in 
school history. North Carolina 
head coach John Bunting faces an even 
greater challenge as he enters his second 
season in Chapel Hill. In his first year at 
his alma mater. Bunting rejuvenated the 
Carolina program, capping an 8-5 season 
with a 16-10 victory over Auburn in the 
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. UNC fans reveled 
in the victory with a New Year's Eve cele- 
bration that lasted well into the evening. 

However, the Tar Heels were hit hard by 
graduation losses and must replace eight 
starters on defense and five starters on 
offense. 

Bunting feels this year's team can be suc- 
cessful if it stays focused, plays consistently 
and in his words, "learns to win." Bunting 
knows he is still building the Tar Heel pro- 
gram, and after a year of teaching his team 
to play faster, harder and smarter for 60 
minutes, he knows there are still areas to 
address. 

"We want to continue to improve this 
football program," says Bunting. "We're 

still building that foundation. We know our weaknesses, but we think we can 
have a great training camp and come out of the chute fast. I think we can be a 
good football team this year and if we're not, I'm going to be extremely disap- 
pointed along with the fans. My expectations are high." 

Last season's success was the result of an intimidating defense and an oppor 
tunistic offense. All-Americas Julius Peppers and Ryan Sims spearheaded a 
Tar Heels defense that was the best in the ACC and ranked 15th in the nation. 
Peppers, Sims and six other defensive starters are gone and, perhaps more so 
than in recent years, the Tar Heels will rely on their offense to provide a spark. 

OFFENSE 




The Tar Heels will rely on a trio of return- 
ing tailbacks to handle the bulk of the carries 
this season. Juniors Willie Parker and 
Andre' Williams have the most experience, 
but sophomore Jacque Lewis played as a 
true freshman last year and made several 
contributions. Among the tailbacks Williams 
is the Tar Heels' most powerful runner, 
Parker is the fastest and Lewis is the most 
elusive. The eventual starter should emerge 
from this group that combined for over 
1,100 yards last year. 

Parker, who began the year as the starter, 
but lost the job to Williams three games into 
the season, was the offensive star in the 
Peach Bowl victory. Parker started in place 
of Williams, who injured his back late in the 
year, and carried 1 9 times for 1 3 1 yards and 
one touchdown. Williams, who had offsea- 
son back surgery and missed spring practice, 
started eight games in 2001 and was the 
team's leading rusher with 520 yards. He is 
expected to be back at full speed in the fall. 

Lewis was one of seven true freshmen to 



Things are heading in the right direction 
for wide receivers Sam Aiken (left), who 
went head-over-heels to score a touch- 
down against Florida State last year, and 
Chesley Borders, who has helped point 
the Tar Heels in the right direction with 
his improved play. 



Record-setting year quarterback Darian Durant and junior Florida transfer 
C.J. Stephens for the starting position this fall. Durant, who announced he 
would transfer from North Carolina and then changed his mind a month later 
and returned to the team in time for spring practice, established school fresh- 
man records for touchdowns (17), passing yards ( 1 ,843) and total offense 
( 1 ,971 ). Durant made just two starts last season as he and Ronald Curry traded 
series in a two-quarterback system that proved very successful. The Tar Heels 
were 8-0 in 2001 when employing the two-quarterback rotation. 

"I think Darian's a lot more focused and it's much more clear what he needs 
to do in preparation for this fall," says Bunting. "The players are excited about 
the commitment he's made to help us win football games. 

"Darian is a tremendous run-to-throw guy. Those type of quarterbacks are 
probably the most dangerous. He can run, but he runs to throw and that really 
can hurt a defense." 

Stephens, who has played just one snap in a college game, sat out last season 
as a transfer student learning the intricacies of offensive coordinator Gary 
Tranquill's offense. Blessed with a strong arm, Stephens is also a capable run- 
ner and has worked hard on and off the field since arriving in Chapel Hill. 

"They'll both run with the first units in fall camp," Bunting says. "1 think it 
will probably go down to the wire, but that doesn't concern me. I want to have 
a starting quarterback by the time we play Miami (Ohio). It could easily be a 
decision Gary Tranquill and I don't make until the Monday prior to the game." 

Also in the mix at quarterback are redshirt freshmen Matt Baker and 
Terrance Highsmith. Baker is a skilled passer with good strength and 
Highsmith is the most mobile quarterback on the squad. 



play last season 
and had his best 
game against 
Duke, gaining 94 
yards on 1 1 carries. 

Once again, the Tar 
Heels' wide receivers 
may be the most produc- 
tive position on offense for 
the second consecutive season. 

All-ACC candidate Sam Aiken 
emerged as Carolina's top playmaker in 
2001 , catching several deep passes and mak 
ing long plays out of short catches. It was 
his head-over-heels touchdown play against 
Florida State that ignited Carolina's 
remarkable 41-9 victory and its subsequent 
five-game winning streak. Aiken had a 
career-high 46 catches and mad 
touchdown grabs, the second-h 
est single-season total in school 
history. Aiken had Carolina's 
three longest receptions in 200 I 
including a 75-yarder vs. Wake 
Forest. A soft-spoken senior, 
Aiken leads by example on 
the field. 

"Last year when we 
needed someone 
to step forward 
and become a 
playmaker for 
us, it was Sam 
Aiken," says 
Bunting. "He has 
great hands, is a deep

2002 CAROLINA FOOTBALL 



threat and can go over the middle and take a hit. In a league with great 
receivers, he certainly ranks as one of the best." 

Opposite Aiken is senior Chesley Borders, who will step into the starting 
spot left vacant by Bosley Allen's dismissal from the team. Borders had his 
best season in 2001 with 27 catches for 448 yards and four touchdowns. 

Several young receivers will have an opportunity to compete for playing 

time as UNC seeks a 



EXPLOSIVE OFFENSE 



Carolina tied the school record last year with 
25 touchdown passes. 



Six starters, AII-ACC candidate Sam Aiken 
and 71 percent of Carolina's total offense 
returns in 2002. QB Darian Durant, whose 
1,971 yards of total offense accounted for 45 per- 
cent of the offense, also returns. 



Carolina averaged 26.8 points last season, 
the most since 1997. 



- ~ The Tar Heels have averaged over 220 

Q b? s yards of offense in five of the last seven 

seasons, including last year's 239.3 yards 
per game - the highest average since 1997. 



replacement for Kory 
Bailey, who ended his 
career in UNC's top 10 in 
receptions and receiving 
yardage. Brandon Russell 
was solid in his first year as 
a receiver after playing tail- 
back as a freshman. 
Russell had 19 catches for 
235 yards and one touch- 
down. Jarwarski Pollock 
excelled in spring practice, 
including six catches for 
100 yards and one touch- 
down in the spring game. 
Isaiah Robinson, who tore 
his ACL in midseason prac- 
tice last year, and Danny 
Rumley, who broke his foot 
in the offseason, both missed spring practice but should be ready for the fall. 
The offensive line is a group that has concerned Bunting since his arrival. 
Bunting's primary goal is to establish more depth at all five positions and learn 
to consistently protect the quarterback. Bunting hopes the addition of new 
offensive line coach Hal Hunter, who coached several outstanding linemen in 
two years at Indiana, will bring stability to a unit that has been largely over- 
looked in recent years at UNC. Although Carolina lost both its center and left 
tackle, the Tar Heels return three starters on the offensive line for the first time 
since 1999, including guard Jupiter Wilson, guard Jeb Terry and tackle Willie 
McNeill. McNeill split time last year with true freshman Jason Brown at right 
tackle, but Brown will move to center. 

Skip Seagraves, who made one start last year at Clemson, is slated to fill the 
void at left tackle. He will face competition from sophomore Jonas Seawright, 
a converted defensive tackle, and Justin Barton, who has battled injuries the 
past two seasons. 

Junior Marcus Wilson has played both center and guard in the past two sea- 
sons and is the top reserve on the line. 

The tight end position is well stocked this season with returning starter Zach 
Hilton, junior transfer Bobby Blizzard, redshirt freshman Brian Chacos and 
walk-on John Dunn. After playing behind AII-ACC tight end Alge dumpier 
for two season, Hilton earned playing time last year with 12 receptions for 88 
yards and two touchdowns. He started the final nine games of the year, includ- 
ing the Peach Bowl, and has the inside track on the starting position this fall. 
However, Blizzard, who played more of a receiver role at Kentucky, should 
team with Hilton to provide a powerful combination. 

DEFENSE 




With two of the three returning starters in the secondary the strength of 
Carolina's 2002 defense should be at comerback and safety. 

"You don't win if you're not good up front on defense, but if you give up a 
lot of big plays, you're not going to win either." says Bunting. "That's why 
our secondary is special this year. I think Michael Waddell can cover anyone 
in the country. Last year we put him up against the best receiver every week 
and he played with a great deal of consistency. He's bigger and stronger than 
he was last year. He's got a great opportunity down the road, but we want to 
have him here for the next two years." 

Led by Waddell, a second-team all-conference selection last season, and pre- 
season second-team All-America safety Dexter Reid. the Tar Heel secondary is 
one of the best in the league. Waddell is widely considered one of the best 
cover cornerbacks in the ACC and Reid is a hard-hitting safety who was third 
on the team with 99 tackles and added two interceptions in 2001 . 

"Dexter has done a great job during the offseason with his maturation and 
growth as a person and as a leader on the team," says Bunting. "I think he's 
going to be a special player in our program for the next two years." 

Kevin Knight, Carolina's nickel back last season, should start at the other 



With several question marks on defense, the Tar Heels need a healthy 
Will Chapman to anchor a front seven that lost six starters. 

cornerback position and sophomore Chris Curry and senior DeFonte Coleman 
are expected to compete for the other safety position. Curry played last season 
as a true freshman and was impressive in the spring. Coleman has battled 
shoulder injuries the last two years, but started eight games in 2000. and is 
completely healthy heading into the season. Derrick Johnson, Chris Hawkins 
and Ronald Brewer give the Tar Heels good depth at cornerback, while 
Michael Harris and Bryant Macklin are reserve safeties. 

On the defensive line, Carolina must replaces three starters, including 
Peppers, Sims and defensive end Joey Evans. All three were selected in the 
2002 NFL Draft. Junior defensive tackle Will Chapman, who is recovering 
from a torn ACL suffered last year at Clemson, is expected to be ready for the 
fall. Chapman started eight games last season and had 29 tackles. Senior Eric- 
Davis is the most likely candidate to fill the other tackle position, but was 
pushed in the spring by soph- 
omore Carl Smalls, junior 
Donti Coats and freshman 
Chase Page. Smalls sat out 
last season after transferring 
from South Carolina, but has 
the size to play the position. 
Page, who is playing his third 
position at Carolina, switched 
from offensive guard to 
defensive tackle in the spring 
and impressed the coaching 
staff with his tenacity. 

Among those who will 
compete for starting spots at 
defense end include Issac 
Mooring and Jocques Dumas. 
Mooring had two sacks last 

year and Dumas played as a true freshman. Sophomores Jermicus Banks and 
Larry Jessup and redshirt freshman Tommy Davis are also contenders for play- 
ing time. 

The graduation of David Thornton, Quincy Monk and Merceda Perry - all 
three whom were either selected in the NFL draft or signed an NFL contract - 
leaves Carolina with virtually no experience at linebacker. Looking to keep 
Carolina's linebacker tradition alive is a group of players that have no regular- 
season starts among them. Malcolm Stewart is the most experienced returning 
linebacker, but has spent the majority of his career as a special teams player. 
Stewart should snare a starting spot at outside linebacker, but the other two 
positions are up for grabs among several players who have rarely played at 
Carolina. 

"Our defense needs to learn to play consistently, because I think we will 



Carolina has posted 79 sacks in the last 
two seasons, the fourth-highest total in the 
country in that time. 

Carolina has finished first or second in total 
defense in the ACC five of the last seven 
seasons. 

Last season, Carolina allowed 21 .8 points 
per game, its lowest average since the 
1997 season. 



Carolina was first in the ACC and 15th in 
the nation in total defense last season.

a. 




have playmakers," says Bunting. "Malcolm 
Stewart is someone for us who can be a real play- 
maker this year. He enters the season in a similar 
situation as Thornton did last year. He hasn't 
started a game and has played primarily on special 
teams, but I think he can take a giant step up this 
year." 

At middle linebacker, redshirt freshman Doug 
Justice and Sean Williams will compete for the 
starting position. Justice emerged from spring 
practice as the starter. At the other outside posi- 
tion, either junior Clay Roberson or sophomores 
Clarence Gaddy and Devllen Bullard should take 
the spot. 

"I think we have some athleticism at line- 
backer," says Bunting. "Doug Justice is a good 
athlete and Malcolm is as good an athlete as we 
have on our team. I think our athleticism and 
speed is equal or better than what we had last year. 
Neither David nor Quincy had very many starts 
entering last year and that's very similar to the situ- 
ation we have this year." 

Senior Robert Harris, a former walk-on, who 
was expected to contend for the middle linebacker 
position, injured his right knee in the offseason and 
will miss the entire season. 

SPECIAL TEAMS 



Bunting puts a great deal of emphasis on special 
teams, citing last season's five-game win streak in 
which Carolina did not allow a punt return over 12 
yards and only one kickoff return over 3 1 yards. 

"It's an area that is sometimes overlooked," he 
says. "But it can sometimes be the most important 
factor in a game." 

The Tar Heels must replace place-kicker Jeff 
Reed, who graduated and was signed by the New 
Orleans Saints in the offseason. Reed was a semi- 
finalist for the Lou Groza Award as the nation's 
best kicker in 2000, and was a very consistent kick- 
er. His departure leaves an opportunity for 
Michigan State transfer Dan Orner, walk-on Topher 
Roberts or incoming freshman David Wooldridge. 

John Lafferty, who punted well at times last sea- 
son, needs to become more consistent. Last year, 
he punted 67 times for a 39.6 yard average. 

While Bunting is settled on Pollock as the Tar 



"We want to continue to improve this football program. We're still building that foun- 
dation. We know where our weaknesses are and we think we can have a great training 
camp and come out of the chute fast. We think we can be a very good football team this 
year and if we're not, I'm going to be extremely disappointed along with the fans. My 
expectations are high." 



Head Coach John Bunting 



Heels' punt return man, he is still seeking a suitable 
kickoff return man. Carolina tried several players 
at that position last year, but finished eighth in the 
league in kickoff returns. 

SCHEDULE 



For the second consecutive year. Carolina faces 
one of the nation's top schedules with non-confer- 
ence games vs. Miami (Ohio), Texas, Arizona State 
and Syracuse. Seven of UNC's 12 opponents 
appeared in bowl games last season and Texas and 
Syracuse finished the year ranked among the 
nation's top 15 teams. 

"I think our returning players can learn from last 
year's experience," says Bunting. "Last year we 
talked about playing hard and fast for 60 minutes. 
But, we were playing a difficult schedule, our 
offense started slow and our special teams were 
inconsistent. After the third game, we said we 
needed to play smarter. This year, with the youth 
we have, the next step is learning how to win and 
playing consistently. I think we can do that and be 
successful. I'm excited about the 2002 season." 



Bunting also is excited about the addition of his 
first full recruiting class he signed in February. 
With Carolina searching for depth on the defensive 
and offensive lines, several of those players may be 
pressed into early season action. 

"I think we signed an outstanding recruiting 
class and many of those players will have an 
opportunity to immediately compete for playing 
time." 




The University of 
North Carolina and 
Nike extended their 
agreement tor eight 
more years beginning 

in July 2002. The agreement provides each 
varsity team with shoes, apparel, equipment 
bags and other product. It also provides 
$100,000 annually to the Chancellor's 
Academic Enhancement Fund for undergrad- 
uate teaching and $100,000 annually to the 
athletic department to reward Olympic sport 
programs and coaches for academic and ath- 
letic excellence.

2002 NFL 
.DRAFT 

| More players were drafted 
from North Carolina in 2002 
than any other ACC School. 

J A total of 10 Tar Heels from 
last year's team that won the 
Peach Bowl were either drafted 
(6) by an NFL team or signed 
free agent contracts (4) with an 
NFL team following the 2001 



season. 



J Carolina has had 16 first- 
round NFL Draft picks. 

| Carolina is the only ACC 
school to have at least one 
player selected in every NFL 
Draft since 1971. 



J Carolina ranked tied for 
ninth among all schools with 27 
NFL players on 2001 opening day 
rosters. 



J Carolina placed two Tar 
Heels in the top six of the NFL 
Draft for the first time in school 
history. Carolina and FSU are the 
only two ACC schools to ever 
have two players drafted in the 
first six picks. 

J Five Tar Heel defensive 
linemen have been drafted in 
the first round in the last five 
years — Julius Peppers and Ryan 
Sims in 2002, Ebenezer Ekuban 
in 1999, Greg Ellis and Vonnie 
Holliday in 1998. No school in 
the country can match that 
accomplishment.

J In 1997, ESPN sent its College Gameday crew of 
Chris Fowler, Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit to Chapel 
Hill to cover all the festivities leading up to UNC's 
top-five battle with Florida State. 

J "We are in an era when football facilities represent 
how committed a program is to being one of the 
best. At North Carolina, I expected the Smith Center 
to be one of the best for basketball — and it is. What 
surprised me was how outstanding the new football 
facility is. They certainly have a top-notch facility. 
When I walked away from Chapel Hill, I was totally 
impressed. Now I judge every facility against 
Carolina's because they have the best in the country."

SPOTLIGHT FALLS ON TAR HEEL RECEIVERS 

Tar Heels have a deep and talented group of wideouts. 



Borders and Aiken headline UNC's receivers. 



by Adam Lucas, TarHeelBlue.com 

Wide receivers coach Gunter Brewer is not a man 
who is used to taking orders. If anything, the man in the 
floppy white hat out on the practice field is used to giv- 
ing orders, not receiving them. 

But when Brewer and offensive coordinator Gary 
Tranquill sit down to design an offensive game plan for 
the 2002 Tar Heels, they have to take orders from their 
available personnel. And at wide receiver, that person- 
nel implores them to get as many bodies on the field as 
possible. 

Eleven different Tar Heels caught a grand total of 
218 passes in 2001. The hands that snagged 131 of 
them return this year, plus some talented players who 
redshirted last year and incoming freshmen with big 
reputations. 

"If we can stay healthy, playing four and five 
receivers at a time is in the plan," Brewer says. "We're 
going to be a multifaceted offense, showing you two 
backs, one back, and no backs. We did that a little bit 
last year and we want to expand on it this year with the 
quarterbacks that we're going to have. 

"That's the trend, because people want to put a 
bunch of people in the box to stop the rim, so you have 
to throw it. You're looking for matchups, and we feel 
like we're pretty good with our receiver against their 
nickel guy. Our fourth and fifth receivers are pretty 
dang good." 

The receiving corps is pretty dang good from top to 
bottom. Sam Aiken remains the headliner. He led the 
team in receptions last year and also had the most 
touchdowns, the highest per-catch average and the 



longest play from scrimmage. 

Brandon Russell and redshirt freshman Danny 
Rumley missed some spring practice time due to 
injuries, but Chesley Borders had an impressive spring, 
showing signs of becoming a Na Brown-type reliable 
receiver who can take some pressure off the other field- 
stretching receivers. Borders says that after years of 
watching the defense win games for Carolina, the 
offense is ready to assume that responsibility. 

"We've taken the leadership of this team on our- 
selves." the senior from Shelby says. "If we win or lose, 
it's going to be on us." 

Borders, Aiken and Russell are all known assets. It's 
the untapped potential of some of the players who 
haven't already played big roles that's the most intrigu- 
ing. 

Chief among those is sophomore Jarwarski Pollock, 
who is perhaps least popular among the defensive backs 
due to his uncanny ability to make them look foolish 
with a shimmy after catching a pass. 

"He's a little guy who has a lot of shake, and he has 
good speed to go with it," Brewer says. "With his size 
[5-8, 166 pounds), he's tough to tackle, because even if 
you knock him off his feet you better wrap him up." 

Pollock, who had John Bunting grinning on the first 
day of freshman practice last summer, will see the field 
this fall and also possibly return a few punts. He was 
the star of the Spring Game, hauling in six catches for 
100 yards and a 42-yard touchdown catch. He's just 
one of a deep group that has dictated some of the tactics 
employed by Tranquill and Brewer. And those are 
orders that they are happy to take.

CEN TE R OF ATTENTION 

Sophomore Jason Brown moves over to center. 



by Adam Lucas, TarHeelBlue.com 

Jason Brown made rapid progress in 
2001, when he saw game action as a 
true freshman. His rookie year was 
spent at right tackle, but with the depar- 
ture of Adam Metts. he's switched to 
the center position in the spring. 

It's more complicated than just slid- 
ing two spots to his left. The center is 
responsible for all the line calls, mean- 
ing that Brown is required to make 
split-second recognitions of defenses 
and blocking assignments. He would 
seem to be the perfect candidate for 
such a cerebral job, since the 6-foot-3. 
311-pound behemoth finished in the 
top 10 academically of his class and 
attended the prestigious North Carolina 
Governor's School. 

His transition, which was singled out 
for praise by John Bunting in the 
spring, is being aided by a sim- 
plified system under new 
offensive line coach Hal 
Hunter. 

In the offseason. Brown 
spent much of his time think- 
ing about weightlifting. His 
combined pounds lifted in the 
squat, bench press, and power 
clean set a Carolina record. 

His power-clean effort of 
372 pounds was his proudest 
achievement. 



"Coach Connors has been working 
with me on hip flexibility and hip 
explosion," Brown says. "We've been 
working on releasing all the energy I 
have in my legs." 

He has to fuel that energy in some 
way. Recently, the offensive linemen 
have taken to going out to eat as a unit 
every Friday night. While it might be a 
nightmare for the Chapel Hill restaura- 
teurs who look up and see at least five 
280-plus pound inventory-killers saun- 
tering through the door, it's an essential 
part of building a successful O-line. 

The weekly dinners are about more 
than just punishing buffets. They're 
also about building cohesiveness and 
familiarity on the line. 

"We're very close and that's the only 
way we're going to get better." Brown 
said. "Even in our free time we're hang- 
ing out together."

Sophomore wants to become more physical. 



Defensive end Jocques Dumas 



by Adam Lucas, TarHeelBlue.com 

Since his arrival on campus, Jocques Dumas 
has been one big enigma. 

Not about his football talent. Everyone knows 
he can play. But what's the story on the pronunci- 
ation of his first name? 

There's the "JOCK" theory. That's the one John 
Bunting uses, and that's the way Bunting pro- 
nounced his name when discussing the precocious 
defensive lineman who saw plenty of action in 
2001 as a true freshman. 

But those who knew Dumas in high school 
thought it was "JOCK-ease." 

To clear up the confusion, let's go to the source. 
According to Dumas, it's "jock-EESH." 

Thankfully, there has been significantly less 
question about his football talents than about his 
name. On the first day of freshman practice last 
August, Bunting proclaimed that Dumas was a 
"Sunday player," which is heady praise coming 
from a man who saw his share of Sundays in the 
NFL. But Dumas was still a little surprised when 
he learned he wouldn't be getting the usual red- 
shirt year that most freshmen enjoy. 

"I was told to expect being thrown into the fire, 
but I still didn't think it would happen," he says. 
"But when it did, it happened so quickly that I 
didn't have time to get jitters or get scared." 

It's his 6-6 frame that scares opponents. Dumas 
carried about 225 pounds when he arrived in 



Chapel Hill, but after nearly a full year with 
strength coach Jeff Connors, he's now up to 
almost 260. 

Still not even 20 years old, he'll be counted on 
to replace much of the pass rush that departed 
with Julius Peppers and Joey Evans. 

"That's why James Webster played him last 
year," Bunting says. "It was his idea to get him in 
the game and get him baptized, because we knew 
he was going to play a lot this year. He is still 
learning the game, but he will be a force in the 
pass rush." 

Ever since his arrival on campus, the adjective 
most associated with Dumas has been "raw." But 
he's putting in significant time working on skills 
that will add technique to his powerful frame. 

"I really want to get a lot more physical," he 
said. "I'm so far from where I need to be." 

He can't be too far away. He's already penciled 
in as the starter at one defensive end. And 
although he might rack up the sacks in 2002, get- 
ting him to talk about his individual goals is 
tougher than pancake blocking him. "I just want 
to do everything I can to help this team be suc- 
cessful." With a smile, he adds, "Everybody 
would like to be in the paper for having so many 
sacks. But it's really not important. We just need 
to win games." 

Win games and the attention will come. Just 
make sure you pronounce his name correctly.

TAR HEELS 7 TIGH T END TALENT 

Hilton, Blizzard are a potent combination. 



by Adam Lucas 
TarHeelBlue.com 

It was much easier for 
Zach Hilton to smile this 
spring, as the Silver 
Spring, Md., native has 
ascended - for now - to 
the top slot on the light 
end depth chart. 

He's one of a full set of 
tall, athletic tight ends bat- 
tling for playing time. 
Bobby Blizzard, a transfer 
from Kentucky, will be 
eligible in the fall and 
played well at times for 
the Wildcats. Redshirt 
freshman Brian Chacos 
and converted quarterback 
John Dunn are also in the 
mix. 

In fact, the Heels are so 
deep at the position that 
playing two tight ends 
might become more com- 
mon than last season. 

"I'd like for them to be 
so good that we have to 
play two tight ends a lot," 
says assistant coach Ken 
Browning. "If you do that, 
that means you have to 
have a third guy also, because you don't 
want to lose that part of your offense just 
because somebody gets nicked up." 

Right now, Blizzard and Hilton appear 
to be in the closest battle for playing 
time. Blizzard, who will be a junior in 
the fall, still must learn some of the intri- 
cacies of the Carolina offense before he's 
ready to contribute. He also is adapting 
to the way the Tar Heels want him to play 
tight end. At Kentucky, he was used 
more frequently split out from the line of 
scrimmage instead of down in a tight 
end's three-point stance. 

"When Bobby first came here he was 
overweight and out of shape," head 
coach John Bunting says. "He's learning 
how to do things our way and has made 
a lot of progress in the weight room. He 
was playing wide receiver at Kentucky. 
and we're asking h:m to be the total 
package." 

Hilton knows about struggling to put 
together a total package. His hands and 
receiving ability have never been in 
question, nor has his enviable height that 
enables him to outreach most defenders 
for passes. Last year, he hauled in 12 
receptions and two touchdowns. But that 
production was accomplished while 
splitting playing time with senior Doug 
Brown. 

In effect, Carolina had a run-blocking 
tight end and a pass-catching tight end 
last year. Brown, who didn't catch a pass 
in 2001, was the blocker. Hilton was the 
receiver. With Brown aone. Hilton wants 




Tight End Zach Hilton 

to do both in the fall. 

"I've always had pretty good 
strength," he says. "But I'm really tall, so 
being a good blocker has a lot to do with 
getting my hips down and my hands in 
the right position. Coach Browning is a 
great teacher, and he's really helped me 
with it. 

"I think it's come a long way, but it 
also has a long way to go. I've been con- 
centrating on it for a while, and hopeful- 
ly by next year I'll be an above-average 
blocker and will be able to move some 
people around." 

"A lot of it is leverage and knowing 
how to use it once you get it," Browning 
says. "It's a matter of the muscles and 
skeletal system working together so that 
you're getting the most out of your 
power. There are a lot of guys who are 
strong but aren't very good blockers." 

Blocking is what will earn whoever 
wins the tight end battle their playing 
time. But pass-catching gets more recog- 
nition from the fans. It also could be an 
important cog in the 2002 offense, as 
Carolina enters the season with Darian 
Durant and C.J. Stephens listed as co- 
starters at quarterback. 

Stephens knows how important a reli- 
able light end can be. 

"It's very important," he says. "The 
tight end has to be a very versatile play- 
er. We've got some great athletes here 
and they're all very hard workers. We're 
going to be very, very good at the tight 
end position this year, and that will make 
us a more versatile offense."

DJ PUTS RAP CAREER ON HOLD 

Football has consumed Johnson. 



by Adam Lucas 
TarHeelBlue.com 

John Bunting's "consumed by foot- 
ball" mantra may have claimed its most 
recent inductee. 

Rising junior cornerback Derrick 
Johnson is competing for playing time 
this spring, currently listed behind 
Michael Waddell at one cornerback slot. 
Johnson should have plenty to con- 
tribute, since he played well even as a 
freshman, sealing the 2000 win over 
Maryland with an interception. He 
played in all 13 games last year for the 
Tar Heels, usually being inserted when 
Carolina needed a heavier presence 
against the pass. The Maryland native 
forced a fumble and also made 10 tack- 
les. 

But the 5-foot-9 Johnson, who is 
known as "Boom-Boom" to his team- 
mates, is also working on a side career. 

A group of friends from home, includ- 
ing the brother of former Maryland star 
and recent Houston Texan acquisition 
Jermaine Lewis, has been working on a 
rap album. 

Johnson has always had a love for rap, 
but only recently joined up with the 
Lewis-led group. 

"I've been doing it with them for prob- 
ably about a year." Johnson says. "But 
I've been rapping for a while now." 

The album was mentioned in his biog- 
raphy in last year's media guide, making 
some observers wonder if it was some- 
how overlooked in the Grammy nomina- 
tions for 2002. But it turns out that 
unforeseen circumstances have wreaked 
havoc on the production schedule. 

While Johnson continues to climb up 
the depth chart and lay out receivers, his 
free time for laying down tracks has been 
decreased. 

"The release has been delayed," he 
admits. "It's going to be on an independ- 
ent label. But football has been consum- 
ing me and I haven't been able to go 
home a lot to work on it." 




Cornerback Derrick Johnson 

Johnson has already completed three 
tracks for the disc. When it is released, 
he'll probably find that his toughest crit- 
ics are in the Tar Heel defensive back- 
field. 

The secondary has several players 
who aren't afraid to provide uncensored 
opinions on most anything, and 
Johnson's burgeoning rap career is just 
another potential topic. 

Senior Michael Waddell has already 
received an early listen to the album. 

"I heard a couple of songs." Waddell 
says with a smile. "It's was a while back 
that I got to hear them." 

So. Michael, what's the scoop? Should 
space be cleared next to the Peach Bow! 
trophy for a Grammy? 

"I'm going to say he's all right," says 
Waddell, which qualifies as a huge com- 
pliment from a player who described his 
2001 season as "OK" despite shutting 
down most opposing wide receivers. 
"Him being my friend. I'm not going to 
say he's garbage or anything."

GE TTING DEFE N SIVE 

DTs ready for the challenge. 



by Adam Lucas, TarHeelBlue.com 

Marcus Jones. Vonnie Holliday and most recently, 
Ryan Sims, ruined everything for the Carolina defen- 
sive tackles. Used to be, the tackles were the faceless 
guys down in the trenches, never getting noticed but 
occupying several offensive linemen in order to allow 
the marquee names at the defensive end position to 
pick up sacks and big tackles. 

Sims changed all that. His performance in 2001, 
especially in the Peach Bowl, forced people to pay 
attention to the defensive tackle position. Sims earned 
first-team All-ACC honors last year and also was an 
honorable mention All-America selection. He finished 
second on the team in sacks and made six tackles and 
two sacks in the bowl victory. 

The stats are nice, but the problem is that Sims is 
gone. So is two-year starter Anthony Perkins. 

So the tackle position is one where John Bunting 
needs someone to step up and have a fantastic fall. 
Eric Davis, a senior from Rockingham, looks to have 
the edge at one tackle spot. The other will eventually 
be held down by Will Chapman, but Donti Coats, Carl 
Smalls and Chase Page will be waging a war this fall 
to earn some time in the defensive line rotation. 

"We lost a lot of guys from last year, and basically 
everybody thinks we are going to stink," Coats says. 
"We want to show people that we're just reloading 
right now." 

Page is in his first spring practice and was shifted 
from offensive line to defensive line after the 2001 
season. His tireless motor has already made an 
impression on the coaching staff, although it was his 
speed that first caught their eye. 

"They had mentioned defense to me during prac- 
tices," Page says. "They told me that I was pretty fast 




Donti Coats 

and that I might be able to play defense. Coach 
Connors saw me running and told the coaches about 
it, and then they moved me." 

The move should help the depth at tackle, where 
only one of the top six players is a senior. 

Page, a South Carolina native who currently weighs 
270 pounds, is trying to bulk up to about 285 before 
the 2002 season. He's trying to gain the weight in 
order to battle the 320-pound tackles who are regulars 
in the ACC while also trying to keep the quickness 
that impressed the coaching staff in the first place. 

"I have a great time playing defense," Page says. 
"It's a lot more fun than offense. 1 get to run around 
and hit people and chase after the ball carrier. It's a lot 



Chase Page 

more fun than blocking for the ball carrier. I get to get 
some revenge on some of those running backs." 

The football-loving Page has obviously made an 
impression on Bunting, who singled him out for praise 
on the very first day of practice and noted his "flying 
around" as one of the highlights of practice so far. 

"I think Chase Page has a ton of ability," Bunting 
says. "He just has to learn the position and the tech- 
nique. He has great explosion and quickness and a lot 
of desire to play." 

He'll have to play this year, when defensive tackle 
has suddenly become a marquee position. Blame it on 
Ryan Sims. 



PARKE R POW ERF UL IN BOW L WIN 

Junior tailback was spectacular in 16-10 win over Auburn. 



by Adam Lucas, TarHeeIBlue.com 

Willie Parker can't be a rising junior. It just doesn't 
seem possible. It doesn't seem like the jitterbug from 
Clinton has been around long enough to be a junior, 
but he'll play his third season as a Tar Heel this fall. 

Part of the reason he seems deceptively inexperi- 
enced is a series of injuries and personal issues that 
have limited his effectiveness. A back injury ham- 
pered him during his freshman season, which 
appeared to be behind him when he ignited the Tar 
Heels with a 77-yard touchdown dash at Maryland 
last season. 

But the rest of that game against the Terps, when 
they shut down the Carolina offense, foreshadowed 
the struggles Parker would have over the next few 
weeks. He finished the year with only half as many 
carries as Andre' Williams, although his per-carry 
average of 4.8 easily led the team. When he got the 
chance to carry the rushing load in the Peach Bowl 
against Auburn, he responded with 19 carries for 131 
yards. 

"I never felt like anyone was forgetting about me," 
Parker says. "A lot of little things were going on off 
the field, but the coaches knew what was going on, 
and it's all behind me now." 

Parker will be the most experienced player in the 



offensive backfield this season, but he knows he can't 
get too comfortable. Sophomore Jacque Lewis has the 
flashy moves and quickness that make him a threat for 
the starting tailback job, and Williams should be fully 
recovered from back surgery in time for fall practice. 

Those three tailbacks may get even more carries 
than they did last year, when the Tar Heels ran the ball 
approximately 100 times more than they passed it. 

"The coaches are emphasizing the run," Parker 
says. "They really want us to be able to run the ball so 
that it will open up the passing game." 

He'll be running behind a revamped offensive line 
that includes zero seniors on the two-deep depth chart. 
Two of those ten players, Jason Brown and Jonas 
Seawright, are playing new positions. 

But Brown, who is penciled in as the starting cen- 
ter, has already impressed Parker. 

"He's something else in the weight room," Parker 
says. "He's done it in the weight room, and now he 
just has to do it on the field. The o-line has some 
young guys, but they're going to be fine. They'll get 
better by doing the little things." 

At times it seems like ages since Parker was the guy 
wowing everyone in 2000 spring practice. 

He's not the young guy anymore. Now he has to be 
the go-to guy.

TIME IS RIGHT FOR STEWART 

Linebacker looks to continue Goldsboro tradition. 



by Adam Lucas 
TarHeelBlue.com 

The 2002 UNC 
defense needs Malcolm 
Stewart to be David 
Thornton, and he's well 
on his way. 

In 2001, Thornton was 
the surprise of the year, 
turning his senior cam- 
paign into an outstanding 
season that ended with 
him leading the team in 
tackles, with three sacks 
and one interception. 

Stewart, a senior who 
made the switch from 
defensive end to line- 
backer last spring but still 
carries the un-linebacker- 
like number of 85. is 
from the same town as 
Thornton - Goldsboro. 
The two were teammates 
at Goldsboro High and 
Stewart still counts 
Thornton among his clos- 
est friends. 

But the similarity i: 
more than just cosmetic. 
After not winning any team awards 
through his first four years in Chapel 
Hill, Stewart claimed the team's off- 
season MVP award in winter condi- 
tioning drills, and he has the inside 
track to the starting weakside line- 
backer position. 

He may end up as the lone senior 
linebacker in the starting lineup in 
August. As a group, they're the center 
of concern for the defense. 

"That's the toughest part of our 
defense right now," head coach John 
Bunting says. "We've got a depth 
problem and an experience problem, 
but we do have some talent there." 

Quite a bit of that talent belongs to 
Stewart, who had to play with a cast 
on his right ami in 2000 but played 
well in the closing weeks of 2001 . 

"Malcolm will be hard to block 
rushing the passer this year," Bunting 
says. "My expectations of him are 
high. I think he's going to have a 
breakout year." 

Stewart didn't do anything to dis- 
suade that opinion when he picked off 
the very first pass of spring practice 
and returned it for a touchdown. The 
coaches, led by linebackers coach 
Dave Huxtable, who is in his first 
year coordinating the defense, expect 
to see plenty more of that in the fall. 

His athletic frame also should be 
tough to contain coming off the cor- 
ner in a defense that Bunting suggest- 
ed might like to blitz more. 

"I'm excited about it because it 




Linebacker Malcolm Stewart 

means we get to make more plays," 
Stewart says. "I like being aggressive 
and attacking." 

Huxtable has made some changes 
in the defense since taking over for 
Jon Tenuta, most notably making 
things simpler for hie linebackers bv 
identifying their assignments more 
specifically. 

The change wasn't made because 
of a need to simplify things for a 
defense that lost eight starters. In fact. 
Stewart is looking forward to proving 
the doubters wrong in 2002. 

"I love that people are doubting 
us." he says. "I love that doubt in 
someone. We have to prove to them 
and we have to prove to ourselves 
that we're better than they think. 

"1 don't think it'll be that hard 
...We're a lot closer, both on and off 
the field, this year." 

That's true even though Stewart's 
buddy. Thornton, has departed. But 
his specter still lingers in the expecta- 
tions for the latest senior linebacker 
from Goldsboro who is expected to 
have a major impact on the Tar Heel 
defense. Last year, Thornton was the 
leader of a defense that finished first 
in the Atlantic Coast Conference in 
total defense. Stewart knows the bar 
has already been set high for 2002. 

"I believe he's better than me 
because he has done it on the field." 
Stewart says. "I haven't done it yet." 

If things go according to plan, he'll 
do it this year.

No one is talking about Carolina's 
defensive backs this spring. Which is an 
undeniably good sign. 

While there is much gnashing of teeth 
and wringing of hands over the defensive 
front seven, the secondary appears solid. 
In fact, there will be an unusual role 
reversal in Chapel Hill this fall. Last 
year, it was the front seven, with Julius 
Peppers or Ryan Sims or David 
Thornton, putting pressure on the quar- 
terback and making the secondary's life 
easier. This year, with an inexperienced 
defensive front, the cornerbacks and 
safeties may have to stay in coverage 
longer to allow the line to reach the 
opposing quarterback. 

"I've watched the tape, and I'm not a 
moron." new defensive backs coach Jim 
Fleming says. "I saw Peppers and Sims 
and Joey Evans and the rest of those guys 
who were cranking it up in front last 
year. You had the luxury of being able to 
cover for a very short period of time. 
Now the target is on our back, because 
we have to create pressure on the quar- 
terback by coverage looks and being able 
to hold people in check a little bit longer. 
The front will develop and continue to 
pressure. We'll find a way to get it done." 

The solution begins with rising senior 
cornerback Michael Waddell, one of the 
best pure cover corners the Tar Heels 
have had in recent years. Dre' Bly had a 
great break on the ball that enabled him 
to come up with interceptions. But when 
it comes to straight coverage. Waddell is 
hard to beat. 

The Richmond County product 
defended 1 4 passes last year, although he 
didn't grab an interception until the 
Peach Bowl. Although he says that inter- 
ceptions don't particularly matter, 
Waddell also thinks that figure might 
increase in 2002. 

"Last year, the safeties and corner- 
backs didn't have much of a relation- 



ship." he says. "This year, we're going to 
talk more and try to get more intercep- 
tions." 

One safety who never has a problem 
talking is Dexter Reid, the loquacious 
junior from Norfolk who has evolved 
into an All-ACC candidate at free safety. 
Reid's helmet-cracking hits and closing 
speed have made him the biggest hitter in 
the secondary. 

"Dexter has all the tools to be an 
impact player." Fleming says. "He's got 
the whole package, and that's as much 
because of his work ethic and expecta- 
tions of himself as natural talent. He's 
intense, physical, has good speed and 
good ball awareness." 

Waddell and Reid will be breaking in 
two new members of the secondary. 
Chris Curry is leading the battle for play- 
ing time at strong safety, and Kevin 
Knight is moving from nickel back to 
starting cornerback. 

Curry, a sophomore from Fayetteville, 
got playing time last year as a true fresh- 
man. 

Knight, a senior, has contributed on 
defense the past three seasons, including 
starting a game against Maryland as a 
freshman. 

He'll start opposite Waddell this year 
and also return kicks, trying to use his 
good speed to break big plays on special 
teams. But it's on defense where he will 
make his most important contribution. 
With Waddell already a known quantity, 
it's likely that opponents will test Knight 
early. 

Knight didn't pick off a pass last year 
in his nickel role. But he and the rest of 
the defensive backs should see plenty of 
balls in the air this year while the front 
seven tries to gel . 

"Our guys have to step up to the plate 
and act as one of the stronger units on 
defense until the front seven matures," 
Fleming says. "I've been extremely 
impressed with the attitude of our kids."

Head Coach 



I 



When most observers 
had written off the 2001 
edition of Carolina's 
football team, John 
Bunting had not. 
Despite the Tar Heels' 0- 
3 start, and predictions 
of a 3-9 or 2-10 finish at 
best. Bunting was look- 
ing just around the cor- 
ner for a victory. Where 
the cynics found prob- 
lems. Bunting saw prom- 
ise. 

The first-year Tar Heel 
coach gathered his team 
around him one 

September afternoon, the pain of that 
3 start still palpable. Up next on the 
schedule were the vaunted Seminoles 
of Florida State. 

"Guys, what an opportunity," Buntim 
said. "Florida State comes to our place. 
It can be the biggest win in school history 
for one believe we can do it." 

Bunting looked around him into the eyes 
and faces of a hundred kids. He picked a few 
of them out. 

"Metts, do you love the game of football?" 
he asked Adam Metts. 

"Yes, sir!" Metts answered back. 

"Jupiter, how about you? You love foot- 
ball?" he asked the sophomore guard Jupiter 
Wilson, who responded in the affirmative. 

And on around the team. 

"What an opportunity," Bunting repeated. 

"We're playing the game we love, at home, 
with a chance to beat a great team. Who's 
with me?" 

A hundred voices erupted in unison. 

What evolved, of course, was a 41-9 demo- 
lition of the Seminoles, a game that ranks 
with Carolina's 34-7 lambasting of highly 
regarded Texas in 1948 among the most sto- 
ried victories in school history. 

Welcome to the John Bunting Era. In under 
two years on the job, Carolina's 32nd head 
coach has demonstrated a remarkable combi- 
nation of resiliency, toughness, intelligence, 
passion and leadership. 

"I see a lot of good things in the future," 
Metts said at the end of a 7-5 regular-season, 
capped a month later by a win over Auburn in 
the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. "I think coach 
Bunting can be the next Dean Smith, but for 
football. He knows the game, and he also 
knows how to relate it to players. He's a great 
motivator. This whole team was concentrated 
and so much more consumed by the game of 
football this year. A lot of it I attribute to 



■ 2nd Year at Carolina 

■ 8-5 Record at UNC (1 year) 



■ 46-19-2 Overall Record (6 Years) 



^^^^^\ 




UNC head coach John Bunting won more 
games (eight) in his first season at North 
Carolina than any other first-year coach in 
school history. 



coach Bunting and his staff and how they 
prepared us." 

Adds Kansas City Chiefs coach Dick 
Vermeil, who coached Bunting as a player 
with the Philadelphia Eagles and was his boss 
on the St. Louis Rams' staff which won the 
2000 Super Bowl: "I wasn't surprised that 
they fought through those first three losses. 
John knows how to handle those kinds of 
things. He has the ability to take that pressure 
to win and get the players to produce. He is 
going to have a team here that is disciplined, 
that loves to play and loves to work." 

Bunting was hired by the University of 
North Carolina on December 1 1 , 2000, after 
an eight-year career as an NFL assistant, five 
as a head coach at the NCAA Division III 
level, and a 13-year playing career as a line- 
backer in professional football. The appoint- 
ment by Chancellor James Moeser and 
Athletic Director Dick Baddour culminated a 
decades-long dream by Bunting, who set his 
sights on one day coaching at his alma mater 
shortly after leaving Chapel Hill in the spring 
of 1972. At each stop along the way— from 
Philadelphia to Glassboro to Kansas City to 
St. Louis to New Orleans — Bunting took with 
him a framed photograph of Kenan Stadium. 
It hung in his locker or over his office desk 
for 30 years. 

"Ten years ago I said I'd like to be the head 
coach at North Carolina," Bunting said in 
1985 upon taking a coaching job with the 
Philadelphia Stars of the now-defunct USFL. 
"I said that 10 years ago. What a stupid thing 
to say. I didn't even know what coaching is 
like, what the mechanics of coaching are. But 



I'd like to find out. I just 
don't want to say, 20 years 
from now, 'Gee, I wish I'd 
bothered to find out.'" 

Carolina's football family 
is glad he went to the trou- 
ble. 



Prospective football play- 
ers for the junior-varsity 
team at Springbrook High in 
Silver Spring, Md., gathered 
on the practice field in 
August 1965, under the 
watchful eye of coach Jim 
Collier. He noticed over the 
first few days that one kid 
seemed to be at the front of 
the line for the tire drill and 
cone drill. One seemed to have more fuel 
left after two hours than the others. One 
was stronger and certainly very fast for 
his size— just over 6-foot and nearly 200 
pounds. He seemed to set a high standard 
for the other kids to follow. 
Collier knew he was on to something. 
"I came home one night after practice and 
told my wife, 'If I'm ever going to coach a 
pro, I have one now,'" Collier says. 

"It's not anything you can explain to peo- 
ple. It's a sense of drive, of hunger, it's some- 
thing inside that absolutely propels someone 
to excel. And, of course, he had the physical 
attributes to go with it." 
The player, of course, was John Bunting. 
Over the next three seasons. Bunting would 
inscribe the number "31" in each of his foot- 
ball shoes — in honor of his hero, Green Bay 
Packer fullback Jim Taylor— and take the 
field to create loads of ills for the opposition 
as a fullback on offense and linebacker on 
defense. 

Bunting's efforts caught the eye of a young 
assistant coach on the staff of new Tar Heel 
coach Bill Dooley in the fall of 1967. John 
Atherton became impressed with the pain 
Bunting felt after a narrow loss to a rival. 
"Coach Atherton told us, 'John's had a taste 
of losing. He doesn't like it at all. I like that 
in him,'" remembers Jim Bunting, John's 
father. 

Young Bunting already had an attraction for 
the Tar Heels, having been smitten with their 
colors and demeanor as a basketball team 
playing at nearby College Park against the 
University of Maryland. He picked Carolina 
over Maryland and became a three-year 
starter at the beginning of his sophomore 
year, 1969. Bunting would earn all-confer- 
ence honors as a senior and help in the grad- 
ual escalation of the program's fortunes — 5-5 
in '69,8-4 in '70 and 9-3 in '71.

His trademarks were not physical skills — he 
ran 4.9 in the 40 and stood only 6-1 , 210 
pounds — but toughness, mental acuity and 
white-hot desire to be the best. 

"John's got linebackers' eyes," says John 
Anderson, a classmate and fellow linebacker. 
"The intensity burns through. It's like you 
can see them a mile away." 

"John was so fierce," says Flip Ray, who 
played defensive tackle in the class ahead of 
Bunting. "He would take or deliver the hard- 
est hit you can imagine, then get right back 
up. His jaw would tighten, his eyes would 
burn with intensity. 

"He wouldn't have to say anything. Just 
seeing him stare out from behind that face- 
mask was all anyone else needed for motiva- 
tion." 

Bunting's final team collected the ACC 
Championship and lost 7-3 to Georgia in the 
Gator Bowl. Since then, only the 1972, 1977 
and 1980 teams have won the league title, a 
distinction that's become imminently more 
difficult the last decade with Florida State's 
admission to the ACC. At the news confer- 
ence to announce his hiring, a reporter asked 
Bunting about the huge Super Bowl ring he 
collected during his tenure in St. Louis. 

Bunting paid homage to the Rams' accom- 
plishment—capped by a 23-17 win over 
Tennessee in the 2000 Super Bowl — then 
reached in his pocket and pulled out a small- 
er, older ring. 



"This ring right here is just as important to 
me," he said. "It's my 1971 ACC 
Championship ring that 1 won with a bunch 
of hard-working guys who had one common 
goal. That's what we're going to work to get 
done here." 

That elicited a hearty round of applause 
from the smattering of former players, 
athletic department staffers. Tar Heel 
players and other Carolina supporters 
interspersed with the news media. 
That was the first true insight into this 
coach who had lived in relative 
obscurity to the rank-and-file Tar Heel 
fan for the last three decades. 

Many Carolina people were 
unaware that since leaving Chapel 
Hill Bunting had done the following: 

• Served as a cornerstone to the 
building job Vermeil performed at 
Philadelphia from 1976-82, a period 
that included the Eagles winning the 
1981 NFC Championship before los- 
ing to Oakland in the Super Bowl. 

"His passion for the game and the 
team were clear from the beginning," 
says Vermeil. "He was a player you 
could build around, one who exempli- 
fied the characteristics you want in a 
football player. John defined the 
expression, 'Winning with character.'" 

• Exhibited extraordinary courage and 
desire to recover from a serious knee injury 



during the 1978 season. He had cartilage 
removed and ligaments repaired — major sur- 
gery at the time with a long convalescence. 
Many players don't recover. 

"Surgical and rehab techniques weren't 
what they are today," says Frank LeMaster, a 
fellow Eagles linebacker at the time. "He v\as

• Became a defacto assistant coach by 
organizing weekly film study sessions for 
linebackers and being a sounding board for 
defensive coordinator Marion Campbell. 

"John Bunting as a player knew more about 
our defense than Marion Campbell, who was 
a defensive genius," All-Pro linebacker Bill 
Bergey says. "More than once Marion was 
challenged by John, not in a threatening way, 
but in a, 'Why don't we do this ..." kind of 
way. Marion would always do it his way, 
because he didn't want to be shown up by a 
player. But afterward, you'd see them over to 
the side talking about it. Marion wanted to 
know what John thought." 

• Played an integral role in the 1982 NFL 
players strike, which saw an eight-week work 
stoppage. Bunting was the Eagles' players 
representative to the NFL Players Association 
and was a member of the players' executive 
committee. Teammates and NFL officials felt 
the Eagles were one of the most unified and 
informed clubs in the league because of 
Bunting's work. 

"It was amazing the power John had over a 
lot of guys making a lot of money," says K.C. 
Keeler, an Eagles teammate. "They'd follow 
him blindly."

in southern 
New Jersey. 
After two 

rebuilding seasons. Bunting's teams won 28 
games the last three years, as well as two 
league titles and one trip to the national semi- 
finals. 

"Anyone who played for John, loved him." 
says Richard Wackar, a former Glassboro 
State (today known as Rowan University) 
coach and athletics director. "He could get 
more out of the kids than they believed they 
had in them." 

"His word was gold," says Joe Low, who 
played for Bunting at Rowan. "It was the 
essence of a team playing for a coach." 

• Returned to the NFL for eight years as an 
assistant coach — four at Kansas City, three at 
St. Louis and one at New Orleans. His line- 
backing corps at each stop were considered 
among the best in the league. The high point 
of this tour of duty was winning the Super 
Bowl with Vermeil when one of his lineback- 
ers, Mike Jones, made the game-saving tackle 
at the one yard-line on a Tennessee Titan on 
the final play of the game. 

"He's a great teacher," says Jay Williams, a

member of the Rams' defense that year. "I'm 
telling you, man, he's a great, great coach." 

When the Carolina job became open fol- 
lowing the 2000 season. Bunting realized 
that, at age 50, this would probably be his last 
opportunity at the job he'd coveted for so 
long. His bosses with the New Orleans 
Saints — in particular head coach Jim Haslett 
and general manager Randy Mueller — under- 
stood the passion Bunting had for Carolina 
and believed the job was such a perfect fit 
that they allowed him to pursue and interview 
for the job even though the Saints' season 
was not over. That is not standard operating 
procedure in the NFL. 

Bunting had the support of his former Tar 
Heel teammates, who understood the man's 
inner workings and were willing to trust the 
future of their beloved program to the man 
who'd never coached at the Division I -A 
level. Gayle Bomar, a Tar Heel quarterback in 
the late- 1960s, had a long phone conversation 
with Bunting during the search process and 
hung up believing Carolina could not find a 
better man for the job.

2002 CAROLINA FOOTBALL 



"John blew me away with how passionate 
he was about the job, that Carolina was 
where he wanted to be, that he wanted to get 
the program back to where it had been," 
Bomar says. "I could tell he had thai tire in 
his belly. He didn't talk about the money, did- 
n't talk about being a head coach. All he 
wanted to do was help Carolina realize its 
potential. There was not an ounce of doubt in 
his voice at all. At that point, I jumped on 
bandwagon. I said, 'This guy needs to be 
here.'" 

Baddour and Moeser formed the same opin- 
ion once they had the opportunity to meet 
with him. Bunting was hired and immediately 
brought a jolt of energy to a program that had 
lost the edge it enjoyed during back-to-back 
Top 10 seasons in 1996-97. 

"John Bunting is a man of passion," 
Baddour said. 

"This man will energize our fan base," 
Moeser said. 

"He has the swagger of a winner," defen- 
sive tackle Ryan Sims said. 

"You could feel the power around him," 
defensive tackle Will Chapman added. 

Two of the most significant early moves 
Bunting made were to re-staff the strength 
and conditioning area of the program— Jeff 
Connors was hired from East Carolina to 
direct this crucial department — and to sched- 
ule defending champion Oklahoma on the 
road for his first game of the 2001 season. 
Those were major statements. 

"What an incredible show of respect the 
Oklahoma game was for us, and he didn't 
even know us at the time." says Metts. "It set 
the tone for the offseason. If you want to be 
the best, you've got to play the best." 

Carolina lost at Oklahoma, then on the road 
as well at Maryland and Texas. But a founda- 
tion had been laid and Bunting and the Tar 
Heels never quit. They shocked Florida State 
at home on Sept. 22nd, then reeled off four 
more victories and were in the running for a 
Bowl Championship Series berth going into a 
road game at Georgia Tech in early 
November. Unfortunately, the Tar Heels lost 
that game and the next one, at home against 
Wake Forest, but rallied to beat Duke, SMU 
and Auburn to finish 8-5. 

Through the ups and downs of 200 1 . 
Bunting is confident that the consistency of 
demands from him and his staff made an 
impression on the players. 

"We stayed the course." Bunting says. "We 
wanted to do things our way. We've been 
very demanding and disciplined. A lot of 
players couldn't meet our standards and 
aren't here. A lot of players had to change 
their ways of doing things. They had to make 
the right choices, do the right things or suffer 
the consequences." 



r 



Prior to Carolina's victory over the SEC 
West champion Auburn in the Peach Bowl, 
13 Tar Heels received their degrees in 
December graduation ceremonies. Those 
highlights were followed in April by an NFL 
Draft that saw six Tar Heels selected and four 
more sign free-agent contracts. 

Winning. 

Graduating. 

Playing a game you love at the highest lev- 
els. 

Having an opportunity to succeed in the 
professional ranks. 

Those are the cornerstones to what the 
Carolina program under John Bunting will 
offer to its players. 

"Coach Bunting is a fair and honest 
man," says linebacker David Thornton, 
who bolted from obscurity to a 
fourth-round NFL selection under 
Bunting. "He has a passion for his 
players on and off the field. He gave 
me the opportunity to play and didn't look 
at me differently 
because I was a 
former walk-on. 
He wants to put 
the best players on 
the field. It's a 
blessing that he came 
here when he did." 

Defensive end Julius 
Peppers was the No. 2 pick 
overall in the draft and pointed 
to Bunting's attention to detail in 
helping refine his talents during his 
final year of collegiate football. 

"Coach Bunting tried to get me adjusted 
to the NFL with a training-camp approach 
and bringing an NFL mentality to Carolina. 
He took me in his office and told me what 
it was going to be like at the next level. He 
had me watch tape of guys like (NFL defen 
sive end) Joe Johnson and telling me 
things that would improve my game." 

More and more Bunting will apply 
his thumbprint to the Carolina pro- 
gram. Fans appreciate his openness, 
his honesty, his regular-guy persona. 
Players know that no one played the 
game any smarter or tougher than 
Bunting did during his run as a Tar 
Heel. 

He's living a dream, coaching on 
the campus he loved so much as a 
young man three decades ago. One of 
his favorite touches is the Old Well 
Walk, where the team busses deliver 
the players and Bunting to the Old 
Well two hours before home games. 
From there they walk through a tun- 
nel of cheering fans through Polk 
Place to Kenan Stadium. It's an emo- 



tional stroll each week for Bunting 

"I have to fight back the tears every time." 
Bunting says. "But that's the way I am. I love 
this place. I couldn't be happier being back 
here alter all these years."

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT JOHN BUNTING 







"John is the total package as a football coach 
and as a person. I'm very close to him and I'm 
very proud of him. When you know someone as 
long as I've known John, you really get to know 
them. I have experienced the highs and the lows 
when he was both a player and a coach. We are 
both wearing World Championship Super Bowl 
rings because of his contribution. He helped lead 
a defense that maybe wasn't as talented as 
some of the others in the league and we finished 
sixth in the league in total defense. We won that 
Super Bowl because of people like John Bunting 
and the type of defense he molded that season. 



"I wasn't surprised that they fought through those first three losses (in 
2001). He knows how to handle those kinds of things. He has the abil- 
ity to take that pressure to win and get players to produce. He is going 
to have a team here that is disciplined, that loves to play and loves to 
work. It will be a family atmosphere and it will be a tight knit group of 
players. Carolina should be proud to have John Bunting as its head 
coach. 




Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Dick Vermeil 



"He's done a great job (at UNC) and I think 
he'll continue to do a great job. I don't think they 
could have hired anybody better. I know he's got 
fine coaching ability. He understands the pro 
game as well as the college game. There's no 
question that he prepares guys for the NFL." 

■ Carolina Panthers Head Coach John Fox 



"He helped me out a lot, especially with little 
things. He tried to get me adjusted to the NFL 
with a training camp approach and bringing an 
NFL mentality to Carolina. He took me in his 
office and told me what it was going to be like at 
the next level. He had me watch some tape of 
guys like (NFL defensive end) Joe Johnson and 
telling me things that would improve my game." 

■ Defensive End Julius Peppers 

No. 1 draft pick of the Carolina Panthers 

Played for Bunting in 2001 



"Obviously he's done a great job at Carolina in 
his first season, but that's not a surprise to any of 
us that know John. He was, in my opinion, not 
the most gifted linebacker in the National Football 
league, but was absolutely the best prepared and 
the smartest. That's why he played so long and 
so well. 

"He called all of our defenses in Super Bowl 
XV with the Eagles. I had him come to work with 
me with the Chiefs. I knew he'd be an outstand- 
ing coach, and he was. It didn't take him long to 
get to where he should be, which is as a head 
coach." 



Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson 








"The most important thing is John under- 
stands what it takes to play in the NFL. He's 
been there and he's played a long time so he 
can give advice to these young guys on their 
work ethic and what it takes to play in the 
national Football League, both on and off the 
field. 



"Anytime you have a guy that's played in the 
league and has also coached in the league, it's 
nothing but a plus for the organization, especial- 
ly from the standpoint that every player that 

comes in here in college football wants to play in the National Football 
League, and John can give first hand advice." 

■ New Orleans Head Coach Jim Haslett 



"He brought a different scheme to us. He 
brought more of an NFL feel to our practices 
and to our games. He played 13 years in the 
pros. He's got a Super Bowl ring. He's coached 
the No. 1 defenses in the NFL. That speaks for 
itself. He's got an ACC Championship ring, so 
whatever he tells you, it's going to be the truth. It 
meant a lot to me to have somebody like that." 

■ Defensive Tackle Ryan Sims, 

No. 1 draft pick of the Kansas City Chiefs 

Played for Bunting in 2001 



"I was excited for Coach Bunting and for 
Carolina when he took the job. He's intense, 
he's dedicated and he'll get things going the 
right way. He was our co-defensive coordinator 
in St. Louis and he was the mastermind in the 
press box. Everyone on the team will get 
behind Coach Bunting." 

■ St. Louis Rams Cornerback Dre Bly 
Former Tar Heel All-America 
Played for Bunting in 1999 



"I remember John as a fiery person, a motiva- 
tor that would get in your face and holler every 
once in a while, but a great guy. When there's 
someone he wanted, he was behind you 100 
percent and backed you in everything you did. 
He was very intense, very into his job and loved 
to do what he was doing. He loved to create, 
loved to make up schemes and loved to design 
things. I think the one word that describes him is 
intensity.' He's intense in everything he does, 
and he wants to get the best out of every player 
that's on the football field playing for him. I think 
he did a tremendous job last year at Carolina."

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING ABOUT JOHN BUNTING 



"The fact that Coach Bunting has played in the 
NFL really was a benefit to all three of those 
players [Peppers, Sims, Thornton], because he 
gives them an understanding of what it takes to 
get to that level." 

■ Indianapolis Colts 
Head Coach Tony Dungy 



"I think John Bunting is going to be the next 
Dean Smith of football. Why? Because John 
Bunting knows the game and he's a great moti- 
vator. But not in the traditional sense. He makes 
you think about what you can become and he 
puts a lot of emphasis on the seniors to imple- 
ment what he's trying to do and what his goals 
are for the team and spread it to the younger 
guys on the team. The man is a great football 
coach. When I'm an alum from here I'm going to 
be glad to say I played for him." 

■ Carolina Center Adam Metts 
Played for Bunting in 2001 



"He's a fair and honest man. He has a pas- 
sion for his players on and off the field. He gave 
me the opportunity to play and didn't look at me 
differently because I was a former walk-on. He 
wants to put the best players on the site. It's a 
blessing that he came here when he did." 

■ Carolina Linebacker David Thornton 
2002 NFL Draft Pick of Indianapolis Colts 
Played for Bunting in 2001 



"John Bunting is a man of passion. He's pas- 
sionate about the University of North Carolina. I 
know that he understands the mission of this 
University and will do everything he can to see 
that this program is operated in the values that 
are acceptable to this institution. And I also know 
he will motivate his players to go 110 percent 
every game and every practice." 

■ Dick Baddour (UNC 66) 
North Carolina Athletic Director 




"He has great people skills and does his job in 
a professional manner. He brings out the best 
in his players and they love to play for him." 

■ Ron Jaworski 

Former Philadelphia Eagle teammate & 

current ESPN NFL analyst 





"I thought it was the right time to bring back a 
Carolina guy, somebody who loved the 
University, had helped build the program and 
wanted to see it back for personal reasons. He 
was someone who had given a lot of himself on 
Navy Field. Like Coach Dooley always said, he 
wore that blue bonnet with pride. Plus, he's a 
good coach. He's done a great job wherever 
he's been. He's a players' coach. He gets guys 
to play hard and with passion." 

■ Charles Waddell (UNC '74) 
Carolina Panthers Director of 
Marketing and Sponsorships 



"Anyone who comes here and wants to be a 
better football player and a better person will get 
that if they come to Carolina under John 
Bunting. This guys knows football and is totally 
committed. If you really want to be the best, this 
is the guy to get around." 

■ Paul Miller (UNC 72) 
Former UNC teammate 



"I played with John back in the early 1970s 
and late 1960s. To me, John was one of the 
most intense football players I've ever come 
across and what always impressed me about 
John's football ability was how he studied the 
game. He was a real scholar in the game of 
football. He'll be a great recruiter and the one 
thing that I can assure you is that the team will 
be ready to play on Saturday with John Bunting 
at the helm." 

■ Don McCauley (UNC 70)

"John is a first-class individual who was the

he will be a tremendous addition to North

RLeSlt 



Gunter Brewer is in his third season as the Tar Heels' 
wide receivers coach, having joined the staff in February 
of 2000. Brewer came to Carolina after coaching at 
Marshall from 1996-99. 

An energetic and enthusiastic coach. Brewer has pro- 
duced several outstanding receivers in just two seasons 
with the Tar Heels. Three of Brewer's pupils - Kory 
Bailey, Sam Aiken and Bosley Allen - are ranked among 
the top 20 reception leaders in Carolina history. Bailey, 
who finished his career last season, is fourth all-time at 
UNC with 142 career catches and fifth with 1 ,939 career 
receiving yards. Allen finished his career tied for 14th 
with 82 catches and Aiken enters the 2002 season tied for 
18th with 78 receptions. 

Last season, Carolina's wide receivers were a bright spot on 
offense, with five receivers catching at least 19 balls. Aiken, who had 
caught just 32 total passes in his previous two seasons, made 46 catch- 
es, including eight touchdown grabs, Bailey capped off his career with 
44 catches and six touchdowns and Allen hauled in 39 receptions. It 
was the first time since 1997 that Carolina had three receivers with at 
least 30 catches and it was just the second time Carolina had ever had 
two receivers with at least 40 receptions. 

Carolina tied a school record in 2001 with 25 touchdown recep- 
tions, 23 of which 
were to wide 
receivers. In addi- 
tion, Carolina's big- 
play offense pro- 
duced 43 pass plays 
longer than 20 yards, 
including nine plays 
longer than 40 yards. 

In 2000, four of 
Carolina's receivers 
caught at least 1 5 
passes and three of 
the four averaged 
over 1 5 yards per 
catch. Those four - 
Allen, Bailey, Aiken 
and Jamal Jones - 
combined to catch 
1 1 6 passes for 1 ,87 1 
yards and 10 touch- 
downs. Carolina 
made 1 1 catches that 
went for longer than 
45 yards, including a 
school-record-tying 
78-yard touchdown 
catch by Kory 
Bailey. It was the 
longest reception 
ever by a Tar Heel in 
Kenan Stadium. 
Overall, Carolina 
had 40 pass plays of 
20-or-more yards.

Rod Broadway 



Former Tar Heel letterw inner Rod Broadway begins his 
seeond season as the Tar Heels' defensive tackles coach. 
Broadway came to Carolina after serving six seasons as 
the defensive line coach at the University of Florida. 

Broadway, a 23-year coaching veteran, brings to 
Carolina the experience of coaching on both a national 
championship team at Florida in 1996. He also coached 
conference championships squads at Duke in 1989 and 
Florida in 1995. 1996 and 2000. 

Last season, Carolina led the Atlantic Coast Conference 
and finished 15th in the nation in total defense, allowing 
just over 300 yards per game. Defensive tackle Ryan 
Sims, who combined with Julius Peppers to form one of 
the top defensive lines in the country, had an outstanding year under 
Broadway's tutelage. He earned first-team All-ACC honors and was 
named a third-team All-America. The defensive MVP of Carolina's 
16-10 victory over Auburn in the Peach Bowl, Sims was picked by the 
Kansas City Chiefs with the No. 6 overall selection in the 2002 NFL 
Draft. Peppers was drafted No. 2 overall by the Carolina Panthers, 
giving Carolina two of the top six selections in the NFL Draft. 
Carolina and FSU are the only two ACC schools to ever have two 
picks in the top six of the NFL Draft.

In his first year as tight ends coach last season. 
Browning molded Zach Hilton and Doug Brown into a 
powerful combination of blocking and pass catching. 
Brown was the more adept blocker, while Hilton was a 
more accomplished pass receiver. Hilton, who had 12 
catches, including two touchdown grabs, returns this year 
along with Kentucky transfer Bobby Blizzard. 

As defensive coordinator in 2000, Carolina led the ACC and set a 
school record with 53 sacks. Carolina finished 19th in the nation 
against the run, allowing just 103.5 yards per game, and was second in 
the league and 30th in the nation in total defense. 

Browning was twice named the state's high school Coach of the 
Year at Durham's Northern High School before joining the UNC staff. 
He has brought that formula for success to the Tar Heel program. 
Browning has developed a number of outstanding tackles, including 
first-round NFL draft picks Vonnie Holliday, Marcus Jones and Ryan 
Sims and second-round picks Rick Terry and Russell Davis. Sports 
Illustrated selected North Carolina's defensive tackles in its positional

by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round with the No. 6 pick.

the run as the opponents averaged 77.9 yards per contest. UNC held 
opponents to less than 50 yards rushing in six games and less than 100 
yards in nine of 12 games. 

Browning was the head coach and athletic director at Northern 
High School for 18 years. He posted a 178-35 record and won the

Hal Hunter 



! Assistant Coach 



Hal Hunter, a veteran offensive assistant coach who 
was most recently the offensive eoordinator at Indiana, 
was named North Carolina's offensive line eoaeh on Jan. 
18,2002. 

Hunter eomes to North Carolina after directing Indiana 
to two of its most successful offensive seasons ever. Under 
his guidance, the Hoosiers averaged more than 435 yards 
per game in each of the last two years and finished in the 
top 20 in total offense in both seasons. 

Last year. Hunter designed an offense to fit the skills of 
talented quarterback Antwaan Randle El, who was named 
Big Ten Player of the Year and earned first-team All- 
America honors. Indiana led the Big Ten and finished 
fourth in the nation in rushing offense (averaging 269.5 
yards per game), was 19th in the country in total offense, rushed for 
33 touchdowns and allowed just nine sacks in 1 1 games. The Hoosiers 
were one of just 1 1 teams to average more than five yards per carry 
(5.66) and IU became only the second school in Big Ten history to 
have two 3,000-yard career rushers on the same team (Randle El and 
Levron Williams). 

The previous season (2000), Hunter's first at IU, the Hoosiers were 
seventh in the country in rushing offense, averaging 266.4 yards per 
game, and 12th in the nation in total offense despite starting an entire- 
ly new offensive line. Indiana led the Big Ten in rushing offense and 
finished second nationally in yards per carry (5.8), trailing only 
Nebraska. Indiana scored 34 rushing touchdowns and averaged over 
30.6 points per game, the second-highest total in IU history. 

Hunter came to Indiana after a successful stint as the assistant head 
coach and offensive line coach at LSU from 1995-99. Hunter also 
served as the interim head coach at 
LSU for one game in 1999. At LSU 
he developed one of the Southeastern 
Conference's most dominant offensive 
lines as the Tigers led the SEC in 
rushing in both 1997 and 1998. In 
1997, he was credited with the devel- 
opment of Outland Trophy finalist 
Alan Faneca, a two-time All-America 
selection and 1998 first-round pick of 
the Pittsburgh Steelers. That same 
year, LSU's offensive line also fea- 
tured first-team All-SEC and All- 
America center Todd McClure, a 
1999 draft selection of the Atlanta 
Falcons. In his one game as interim 
head coach. Hunter led the Tigers to a 
season-ending 35-10 win over 
Arkansas. Athlon magazine recog- 
nized Hunter as the SEC's top offen- 
sive line coach in 1997. 

Prior to arriving at LSU, Hunter, 
42, served as an assistant coach at 
Vanderbilt from 1991-94, tutoring the 
Commodores' tackles and tight ends 
for three seasons. In 1994, he was 
placed in charge of the entire offen- 
sive line. Vanderbilt ranked second in 
the SEC in rushing in 1991, 1992 and

Linebacker Quincy Monk was second on the team with 
125 tackles. Thornton (fourth round) and Monk (seventh 
round) were selected in the NFL Draft and linebacker Merceda Perry 
signed an NFL free agent contract. 

Huxtable also served as Carolina's special teams coordinator in 
2001 , a role he will relinquish this fall in order to handle the defensive 
coordinator responsibilities. 

Huxtable came to Carolina after a year as the linebackers coach 
and special teams coordinator at Oklahoma State. He is a 22-year 
coaching veteran who has also coached at East Carolina, Georgia 
Tech, Western Kentucky and Iowa State.

Gary Tranquill 



A coaching veteran with over 40 years of college and 
professional coaching experience, Gary Tranquill enters 
his second season as Carolina's offensive coordinator and 
quarterbacks coach. 

Tranquill has a diverse coaching background that 
includes 1 1 years of experience as an offensive coordinator 
at five different schools, three years as a defensive coordi- 
nator and five years as a Division I head coach. He has 
worked with some of the top quarterbacks in the Atlantic 
Coast Conference during two stints at Virginia, including 
All-ACC selections Scott Secules, Shawn Moore and Matt 
Blundin. In addition, he was the Cleveland Browns quar- 
terbacks coach from 1991-93, where he worked with NFL 
standouts Bernie Kosar and Vinnie Testaverde. 

Last year, Tranquill designed an offense that took advantage of the 
skills of both quarterbacks Ronald Curry and Darian Durant. In the 
eight games Carolina used the two quarterback rotation, UNC was 
undefeated. Following the decision to use a two quarterback rotation, 
Carolina's offense had over 300 yards on all but one occasion. During 
a mid-season five-game winning streak, the Tar Heel offense averaged 
392 yards per game. Carolina set a school record with 25 touchdown 
passes in 200 1 and scored over 26 points per game for the first time 
since the 1997 season. 

Tranquill was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for 
Nick Saban's Michigan State Spartans from 1995-98. During those

four seasons, Michigan State averaged 161.5 yards rushing, 220.9 
yards passing and 27.6 points per game. The Spartans averaged near- 
ly 30 points per game each of the last three seasons of Tranquill's 
tenure - its top scoring averages of the decade. 

As Virginia's quarterbacks coach from 1987-90, Tranquill helped 
develop some of the best passers in conference history. Secules led 
the conference in passing as a senior in 1987, while Moore became 
the school's all-time leader in passing yards, finished fourth in the 
1990 Heisman Trophy balloting, was a first-team All-America and the 
1990 ACC Player of the Year. Tranquill helped coach the Cavaliers to 
a No. 1 ranking during the 1990 season - UVa's highest ever ranking. 

Tranquill left Virginia for a three-year stint with the Cleveland 



Browns, then returned to college as Virginia Tech's offensive coordi- 
nator in 1994 before leaving for Michigan State in 1995. 

A native of Avella, Pa., Tranquill began his coaching career at 
Wittenberg, his alma mater, where he coached from 1963-69. He was 
Ball State's secondary coach in 1970 before becoming the defensive 

Carolina's offense tied a school record with 25 
touchdown passes in 2001 and averaged over 26 
points per game for the first time since 1997. 

coordinator for two seasons at Bowling Green State. In 1973, he 
served three years under George Welsh as Navy's quarterbacks and 
receivers coach. He would later return to Navy as Welsh's successor 
in 1982 as the head coach. 

Tranquill also spent two years as an assistant coach at Ohio State 
(1977-78) under legendary coach Woody Hayes and was an assistant 
at West Virginia from 
1979-81. At West 
Virginia, he spent one 
season as the defen- 
sive coordinator and 
two years as the offen- 
sive coordinator. 

Tranquill, 60, is a 
1962 graduate of 
Wittenberg, where he 
won four letters in 
football and baseball. 
He played on two 
Ohio Conference base- 
ball championship 
teams and two NCAA 
regional winners in 
that sport. In 1960, he 
was the conference's 
top football player. 
He was inducted into

Hall of Fame in 1986.

James Webster 



James Webster, a former Carolina teammate of Head 
Coach John Bunting, begins his second season as the 
assistant head coach and defensive ends coach. Webster, 
who is in his 25th season as a college coach, was the first 
assistant coach added to Bunting's staff last year. 

Like Bunting, Webster came to North Carolina in 1968 
and started at linebacker for three consecutive seasons. 
Although the two stayed in contact after leaving the 
University, Webster and Bunting did not actually see each 
other again until the summer of 1999 at the St. Louis 
Rams' preseason workouts where Bunting was serving as 
defensive coordinator. Webster spent the summer with 
Bunting and the Rams, watching and learning the NFL 
practice routine. 

In his first season back in Chapel Hill since 1973, Webster had an 
immediate impact on the defense and specifically, the defense ends. 
Carolina led the ACC and was 15th in the country in total defense last 
year, led by one of the top defensive lines in the nation. Under 
Webster's tutelage, defensive end Julius Peppers won both the 2001 
Lombardi and Bednarik Awards, becoming the first Tar Heel to ever 
win a major college football award. Peppers became just the second 
Carolina player (Lawrence Taylor was the other) to earn consensus 
All-America honors. He was drafted by the Carolina Panthers with 
the No. 2 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft. 

Prior to returning to Chapel Hill. Webster had spent the previous 
six seasons at East Carolina. Webster coached the Pirates' outside 
linebackers for five seasons from 1995-99 and was in charge of the 
defensive line in 2000. He was promoted to assistant head coach in 
1999. 

Webster began his coaching career at North Carolina under former 
head coach Bill Dooley in 1973 working with the junior varsity pro-

Chancellor James Moeser 



As its ninth chancellor. Dr. James Moeser 
leads the University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill's efforts to set the standard for 
excellence among America's major public 
research universities. 

"Carolina has the potential to enter a new 
defining moment - of being not only 
America's first public university, but being 
first among public universities in our nation," 
Moeser says. "When people around the world 
list the great American universities, we want to make certain Carolina is on the 
short list. We have set our sights that high. This is a great vision for Carolina, and 
it is an attainable ambition." 

For Moeser, who started in August 2000, making new history at Carolina 
began with efforts to help secure North Carolinians' overwhelming approval of 
the $3.1 billion bond referendum for higher education in November 2000. 

The referendum is helping fuel an unprecedented physical transformation of 
one of America's most beautiful campuses. The bonds are bringing Carolina 
$510 million for renovations, repairs and new buildings so that 21st century stu- 
dents can learn in a 21st century environment. Also guided by a visionary mas- 
ter plan for future growth, the university is investing another $600-plus million 
from non-state sources for other buildings essential to continued excellence. The 
university is also beginning to plan for a possible mixed-use development called 
Carolina North on the Horace Williams tract north of the main campus. 

Among Moeser's key duties is to lead private 
fund-raising efforts. In October 2002 he will pub- 
licly announce the goal for and progress in the 
Carolina First Campaign, a multi-year effort to 
position Carolina as the nation's leading public uni- 
versity. The campaign, the largest in the universi- 
ty's history, has among its goals the creation of 200 
new endowed professorships and 1 ,000 new schol- 
arships and fellowships. The campaign is already 
strengthening Carolina's competitive position 
among America's greatest research universities, 
both public and private. 

"Two years ago, I pledged to the people of 
North Carolina to take the critical investment they 
made in Carolina's future through the bond referen- 
dum and at least triple it in private support to this 
university," Moeser says. "We shall make good on 
that pledge at a very minimum." 

Planning strategically for UNC's long-term 
future has been the hallmark of Moeser's adminis- 
tration. Under his leadership. Carolina launched an 
initiative committing at least $245 million over the 
next decade to the emerging field of genome sci- 
ences. The public-private partnership positions 




James and Susan Moeser 



Carolina to be a national leader in determining how 

the genomics revolution will change the ways in which doctors treat diseases, 
scientists design drugs and farmers grow crops. Carolina recently cracked the top 
20 list, as compiled by the National Science Foundation, of national universities 
receiving federal science and engineering funding. That achievement is remark- 
able considering Carolina has no engineering school. 

Such emphasis on science is balanced by an equal commitment to the arts and 
humanities. "The humanities and social sciences are our historical areas of 
strength," Moeser says. "We also have an obligation to provide our students and 
this region with the finest in the arts, and to preserve the incredible architectural 
archive of the historic campus. I subscribe to Thomas Jefferson's view that we 
teach with the built environments we create in buildings and landscapes." 

Moeser moved quickly to fill key administrative posts. In 2001 . he tapped Dr. 
Robert Shelton, a physicist who led research at the University of California 
Office of President, to become provost and executive vice chancellor and lead a 
campus wide effort to determine future academic priorities. Nancy Suttenlield. 
former vice president for finance and administration at Case Western Reserve 
University, joined as vice chancellor for finance and administration. Dr. Tony 



Waldrop, a Morehead Scholar and track star, returned to UNC as vice chancellor 
for research and graduate studies. 

Other focal points of Moeser's first two years have included vigorously pur- 
suing efforts to create a more global university, advocating for continued 
improvements in the quality of the freshman class, expanding growth in research 
funding and increasing emphasis on technology-transfer activities because of the 
direct impact faculty research has on the state's economy. 

On campus, Moeser has supported efforts to enhance undergraduate educa- 
tion, advance the Carolina Computing Initiative and its laptop computer require- 
ment for freshmen and review the student judiciary and Honor Court systems. 

He has also championed the university's longtime commitment to diversity. 
Recent accolades include The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education's survey 
showing Carolina had the most tenured black faculty -51 - among the nation's 
highly ranked universities. Carolina ranked 14th among the top 50 campuses for 
African-Americans as listed by Black Enterprise magazine. That ranking, the 
highest for a major public university, was based on a survey to determine which 
schools were good social and academic fits for black students. 

Moeser was unanimously elected chancellor in April 2000 by the UNC Board 
of Governors and arrived after four years as chancellor of the University of 
Nebraska at Lincoln.A concert organist, Moeser began his career in 1966 at the 
University of Kansas as an assistant professor and chairman of the department of 
organ. He became dean of the School of Fine Arts in 1975. In 1984, he was 
named Althaus Distinguished Professor of Organ, becoming the first academic 
dean at Kansas ever to hold an endowed chair. In 1986. Moeser joined The 
Pennsylvania State University as dean of the 
College of Arts and Architecture and executive 
director of University Arts Services. Six years later, 
he became vice president for academic affairs and 
provost of the University of South Carolina, a post 
he held until becoming Nebraska's chancellor in 
1996. 

In 2001, Moeser was named to the National 
Board for College Education, part of a national 
advisory committee guiding the College Board in 
introducing U.S. seventh-graders to the college 
admissions process and encouraging them to con- 
sider college. 

As a member of the Board of Governors of the 
Josephson Institute of Ethics. Moeser helped UNC 
partner with the institute and the North Carolina 
High School Athletic Association to bring hundreds 
of youth coaches from around the state to an ethics 
seminar in spring 2001. The seminar was part of 
the institute's national campaign to implement the 
Arizona Sports Summit Accord, crafted in 1999 by 
nearly 50 influential leaders including Moeser. 

The chancellor is a past member of the Board of 
Directors of the National Association of State 
Universities and Land Grant Colleges and past 
chair of its technology transfer commission. He was on the Kellogg Commission 
on the Future of State and Land-Grant Universities. In North Carolina, he is a 
trustee of the North Carolina Symphony Society Inc. and a member of the 
Greater Triangle Regional Council. 

A native of Colorado City, Texas, Moeser received a bachelor's of music 
degree with honors in 1961 and a master's of music in musicology in 1964 from 
the University of Texas at Austin. The Graduate School at Texas honored Moeser 
in 2001 with its Outstanding Alumnus Award. Moeser, a Fulbright scholar, grad- 
uated with a doctorate in musical arts from the University of Michigan in 1967. 
A past president of the American Guild of Organists, Moeser has chaired sever- 
al national organ pedagogy conferences. 

Moeser is married to Dr. Susan Dickerson Moeser. a fellow concert organist 
and lecturer in music and university organist at UNC. He has two children from 
a prior marriage: a son, Chris, a law student at the University of Arizona, and a 
daughter. Carter, a physical therapist in Tacoma. Wash.

Athletic Director Dick Baddour 



Dick Baddour, a 1966 graduate of The 

University of North Carolina, was named 
Director of Athletics on June 25. 1997. In his 
five years as director, the Tar Heels have 
undergone a number of changes, yet remain 
one of the premier athletic programs in the 
Atlantic Coast Conference and across the 
nation. Baddour combines an easy-going, 
friendly and visionary style of management 
with a love and passion for the University he 
has served for more than 35 years. 

Baddour sets a high standard of integrity for the program he leads. High grad- 
uation rates, NCAA compliance, sound fiscal management, competitive success 
and national respect are cornerstones of his blueprint for the department's mis- 
sion to the University. 

In 2001, he received a Distinguished Service Medal from the UNC General 
Alumni Association. The awards program noted: "If this sounds like a full plate, 
remember that he gave the National Guard 3 1 years, and retired a colonel. He co- 
chaired the bond drive to build the Chapel Hill Public Library. He was vice pres- 
ident of the Parks and Recreation Commission; chair of the Orange County Heart 
Association; Cub Scout master and Little League coach. Dick was volunteer of 
the year in the public school system in 1996. and successfully managed a Chapel 
Hill mayoral campaign. He is a model of town and gown." 

The Goldsboro. N.C., native heads a program that with 28 varsity sports is the 
largest in the ACC. Carolina won seven ACC cham- 
pionships last year, equalling the top figure in the 
league for the 15th consecutive year, and the Tar 
Heels finished fourth in the Sears Cup standings that 
measure a school's overall NCAA postseason suc- 
cess. A total of 20 sports competed in postseason 
play. The men's soccer team won the national cham- 
pionship, women's soccer was the national run- 
nerup, women's lacrosse advanced to the national 
semifinals and the football team won the Peach 
Bowl. In addition, women's indoor and outdoor 
track and women's tennis posted Top 10 NCAA fin- 
ishes. 

During the past two years. Baddour hired a new 
men's basketball coach and football coach, was a 
member of the NCAA Championship Cabinet and 
NCAA Football Issues Committee, oversaw devel- 
opment of the indoor football and track facility and 
softball complex, and hired managing directors in 
the Educational Foundation and marketing office. 

Baddour hired former UNC linebacker John 
Bunting to direct the football program in December 
2000. Bunting starred at Carolina in the 1970s, had 
a lengthy professional career with the Philadelphia 
Eagles and was a highly respected and successful 
coach in the NFL. Bunting engineered the greatest 
turnaround in school history, winning eight of the 
last 10 games, including the Peach Bowl, after start- 
ing the season 0-3. He won more games (8) in his 
first season than any other first year coach in school 
history. 

Baddour tabbed former Tar Heel Matt Doherty to 




Dick and Lynda Baddour 



replace Bill Guthridge in 2000. Baddour had hired Guthridge to follow the leg- 
endary Dean Smith after Smith stepped down just four months after Baddour 
became athletic director. Guthridge took two teams to the NCAA Final Four and 
was the winningest first-, second- and third-year coach in NCAA history. In his 
first season, Doherty led Carolina to 18 consecutive wins, a No. 1 national rank- 
ing and share of the ACC regular-season championship and was named the 
Associated Press National Coach of the Year. 

Baddour has hired new head coaches in six sports, including football, men's 
basketball, men's golf, women's tennis, baseball and men's lacrosse. Baddour 
hired Mike Fox. a former Tar Heel who plaved in the 1978 College World Series. 

• 2001 PEACH BOWL CHAMPIONS <:<& 



as baseball coach; John Inman, 1984 NCAA men's goll champion and former 
PGA Tour golfer, as the men's golf coach; Jen Callen as the women's tennis 
coach; and John Haus to rebuild the men's lacrosse program. Haus won NCAA 
championships in 1981 and 1982 as a Tar Heel defensive star and twice coached 
Johns Hopkins University to the national semifinals. 

In addition to the many personnel and facility changes that Baddour has man- 
aged, fiscal responsibility has been a key directive in his tenure as athletic direc- 
tor. He has instituted a number of measures designed to keep UNC among the 
nation's most competitive athletic programs, while at the same time ensuring a 
sound financial future. 

Early in his tenure, Baddour established a number of task forces to examine 
specific functions within the department and guide those administrative units as 
they prepare for the 21st century. Baddour formed committees to examine 
recruiting, admissions and academic progress of student-athletes; finances; stu- 
dent-athlete development, communications and most recently, a long-term plan 
for Kenan Stadium. 

As a result. Baddour reorganized the Athletic Department last year after over- 
seeing functional changes in the following areas - marketing, communications, 
academic support, compliance. Educational Foundation, strength and condition- 
ing and ticket operations. 

Baddour continues to direct a vast facilities expansion project that stretches 
from Kenan Stadium to Finley Golf Course. The McCaskill Soccer Center and 
the Francis E. Henry Stadium (field hockey and lacrosse) were dedicated in 1998 
and Finley Golf Course was totally re-designed to a spectacular championship- 
level in 1999. 

Baddour, who has served on 1 2 ACC commit- 
tees and is past chair of the ACC Athletic 
Directors, will serve as a member of ACC 
Committees on Football, Basketball and 
Television and has chaired the ACC Tennis 
Committee. 

He is in his 36th year of continuous service to 
the University. Prior to his current position, he 
spent 1 1 years under John Swofford as the execu- 
tive associate director of athletics. 

After graduating from UNC, Baddour spent 
one year as a cost accountant for Burlington 
Industries. He then returned to UNC in 1967 as 
assistant dean of men. In 1971 he became assis- 
tant dean of undergraduate admissions. 
Coordinating freshman admissions took him into 
every high school in the state. In 1975, he was 
awarded a Master of Arts degree in education with 
a major in student personnel administration and a 
minor in business administration. 

Baddour was then named Assistant Dean at the 
UNC School of Law from 1983 to 1986. He 
served as the school's director of admissions and 
scholarship programs, head of personnel and 
supervisor of career planning and placement. He 
was also in charge of minority recruitment. 

He became associate athletic director in 1986, 
was promoted to senior associate director in 1990 
and to executive associate in 1995. 

A 1962 graduate of Goldsboro High School. 
Baddour and his wife, Lynda, have two sons and a 
daughter. Allen graduated from UNC and Carolina law school and is an Assistant 
District Attorney in Chatham County. He and his wife. Holly, have two sons. 
Henry and Jack. David is a UNC graduate, a Certified Public Accountant, a 
recent UNC law school graduate and works with Womble-Carlyle in the 
Research Triangle Park. He and his wife, Carey, live in Carrboro and have a 
daughter. Lauren. Jennifer is a graduate of UNC Greensboro and earned her mas- 
ter's from the UNC School of Social Work. She is employed as a social worker 
in the Chapel Hill area. Lynda taught kindergarten and first grade for 17 years.

EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION 

What is the purpose of the Kducational 
Foundation? The Educational Foundation is the oldest 
foundation on the UNC campus. The Foundation was 
established to offer financial aid to worthy student-ath- 
letes seeking an education at the University of North 
Carolina and to support the University's athletic pro- 
gram by providing services and funds for the construc- 
tion of facilities or purchase of equipment. 

How mueh support does the Educational 
Foundation actually provide? Since its founding in 
1938. the Educational Foundation has provided schol- 
arships, either partial or full, to over 7,000 student-ath- 
letes. Nearly 400 student-athletes will be awarded 
scholarships during the 2002-03 school year at a cost 
of more than $6.5 million. 



What are the different levels of giving to the 
Fdiieatioual Foundation? 

Little Ram ($100) — Contributions of any amount 
are welcome, however, individuals contributing $100 
or more have the opportunity to purchase season foot-

endowment program for athletics. This program consists of $15,000 and 
$30,000 life memberships as well as $75,000 and $150,000 endowed scholar- 
ships which may be set up through various giving vehicles. Various facility 
projects are in progress as well to which donors may contribute. 

Does the Foundation have chapters at the local level? There are currently 

45 local Educational Foundation chapters which meet at least once a year. 
Many of the coaches attend these gatherings, giving donors an early opportuni- 
ty to hear about recruiting, prospects for the upcoming season and schedules. 

Who provides the leadership for the Educational Foundation? The lead- 
ership within the Foundation is provided by John R. Montgomery. He was 
appointed to the position in March 2001 upon the retirement of long-time

W^r«f M Invested In Carolina Student-Athletes 
Through Donations To The Educational Foundation 

When you make a contribution to The Educational Foundation, you are not only supporting world-class athkks, but 

you are also ensuring the future contributions of our student-athletes to society. The far-reaching benefits of your annual donation 
- even as little as $100 - are impossible to measure in tangible criteria, but you can rest assured every donation pays big returns. 

Because UNC ranks nationally in graduating its student-athletes, who g0 

on to pursue professions in a wide variety of fields, your donations are not just going 
toward the athletic contributions a student might make while at UNC. Rather, your 
donations enhance the overall academic achievements of many gifted students while 
they represent our university at the top level of intercollegiate athletic competition. 

The Educational Foundation, founded over 60 years ago, now supports 400 student- 
athletes in 25 varsity sports at UNC. Today's scholarship costs total over $6 million 
annually, and The Foundation is the only source of funds for these scholarships. If it 
weren't for the generous support of donors such as you, many gifted student-athletes 
would not receive the opportunity to obtain a superb education at one of the nation's 
great academic institutions. Consider your donation a wise investment! 

YOU AISO Receive Dividends AS A DOnOr. Yearly donations to The Educational 
Foundation assist not only the men and women who receive athletic scholarships, but also 
the donors and their families. The following dividends are available at the Little Ram 
($100-$ 149) level of giving: 

An opportunity to purchase season football tickets in Kenan Stadium. 

An opportunity to purchase mini-season basketball ticket packages.

2002 CAROLINA FOOTBALL 

THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA - AN ASSORTMENT OF KEY FACTS 



HISTORY 

• The University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill was the nation's first state 
university to open its doors and the only 
public university to award degrees in the 
18th century. 

• Authorized by the N.C. Constitution 
in 1776, the university was ehartered by 
the N.C. General Assembly Dee. 1 1 . 
1789, the same year George Washington 
first was inaugurated as president. 

• The cornerstone was laid for Old 
East, the nation's first state university 
building, Oet. 12, 1793. Hinton James, 
the first student, arrived from 
Wilmington, N.C. Feb. 12, 1795. By 
March I of that year there were 41 stu- 
dents and two professors, and by I860 
only Yale University had a larger enroll- 
ment. 

LOCATION 

• The 729-acre central campus 
includes the two oldest state university 
buildings. Old East and Person Hall. Old 
East and Playmakers Theatre, an 1852 
Greek-revival building, are National 
Historic Landmarks. 

• The American Society of Landscape 
Architects selected the Carolina campus as one of 
the most beautifully landscaped spots in the coun- 
try. That 1999 ranking, timed to the society's cen- 
tennial, is among the latest affirmations of the 
charm of mighty oaks, majestic quadrangles, brick 
sidewalks and other landscaping synonymous with 
UNC. 

• A campus master plan approved in spring 
2000 by UNC trustees represents a visionary look 
forward, offering a striking view of how the cam- 
pus should exist in future decades to meet the 
needs of students, faculty, staff and the surrounding 
community. The plan captures the ambience of 
north campus in the Polk and McCorkle place 
quadrangles and aims to transform the southern 
region into an equally wonderful place in which to 
learn, teach, work and live. Among the plan's early 
projects are four new residence halls on south cam- 
pus opening in fall 2002 and a planned arts com- 
mon will create a new front door to the campus. 

• The master plan guides a $1 billion-plus con- 
struction program made possible in part by North 
Carolinians' overwhelming approval of a $3.1 bil- 
lion bond referendum for higher education in 
November 2000. The referendum is bringing 
Carolina $510 million for renovations, repairs and 
new buildings. The university is investing another 
$600-plus million from non-state sources including 
private gifts for other buildings essential to contin- 
ued excellence. 

• Chapel Hill has been called "the perfect col- 
lege town" by several publications including Sports 
Illustrated. 

• UNC anchors one corner of the famed 
Research Triangle Park, which continues to play a 
vital role in nurturing the economic development of 
North Carolina. 



RECENT RANKINGS 

• In U.S. News and World Report magazine's 
September 2001 "America's Best Colleges" guide- 
book, UNC ranked fifth among the nation's top 
public universities and tied for 28th overall among 
both public and private campuses. Among under- 
graduate business programs, the Kenan-Flagler 
Business School tied for fifth nationwide. 

• U.S. News also ranked 20 graduate degree 
programs and specialty areas at UNC among the 
top 25 nationwide in its graduate rankings issued in 
April 2002. The magazine rated programs in the 
schools of business, education, medicine and public 
health as well as doctoral programs in the College 
of Arts and Sciences. (Certain professional degree 
programs are ranked annually; other disciplines and 
specialties are ranked periodically.) 

• The 2002 Fiske Guide to Colleges labeled 
UNC one of 21 public universities in the United 
States and Canada that were the "best college 
buys." 

• Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine rated 
Carolina first among a list of the 100 best buys in 
U.S. public colleges and universities because of its 
combination of top-quality academics and low cost. 
Kiplinger's list, published in 2000. called UNC "a 
place where high achievers are in good company." 

• Black Enterprise magazine ranked UNC 14th 
in its 2001 "Black Enterprise-DayStar Top 50 
Colleges and Universities for African Americans" 
list, the highest ranking among major public uni- 
versities. DayStar, a research firm, gathered the 
data for the list, which is based on responses to 
questions about which schools were both a good 
academic and social fit for African-American stu- 
dents. 

• The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education 
concluded that UNC had the most tenured African- 
American faculty - 51 - among the nation's high- 
est-ranked universities. The same 2002 survey also 



listed Carolina as one of only four highly ranked 
universities to have 100 or more African-American 
professors. 

• Business Week magazine ranked the Kenan- 
Flagler Business School's executive education pro- 
grams among the best in the world in 2001 . Kenan- 
Flagler was fifth among executive MBA programs 
and 18th among executive education programs. 
"Grads praise the commitment and knowledge of 
faculty and staff," according to Business Week. 

KEY STATISTICS 

• Now in its third century, UNC belongs to the 
select group of 61 American and two Canadian 
campuses forming the Association of American 
Universities. UNC's academic offerings span more 
than 100 fields, including 84 bachelor's. 165 mas- 
ter's and 108 doctoral degrees as well as profes- 
sional degrees in dentistry, medicine, pharmacy and 
law. Five health schools -- which, with UNC 
Hospitals, comprise one of the nation's most com- 
plete academic medical centers — are integrated 
with liberal arts, basic sciences and high-tech aca- 
demic programs. 

• In fall 2001 . Carolina enrolled 25.480 students 
from all 100 North Carolina counties, the other 49 
states and nearly 100 other countries. Eighty-one 
percent of Carolina's 15.844 undergraduates were 
from North Carolina. Sixty-four percent of 
Carolina's students were undergraduates, 29 per- 
cent graduates and another 9 percent were profes- 
sional degree-seekers. 

• Those students learn from a faculty that totaled 
about 2.600 full-time members in fall 2001. Many 
Carolina faculty members hold or have held major 
posts in virtually every national scholarly or pro- 
fessional organization and have earned election to 
the most prestigious academic groups. 

• Carolina's 236.142 alumni live in all 50 states 
and around the world. Notable alumni include I s

STUDENTS 

• The entering freshman class of 2001 was the 
strongest in Carolina history, marking the third 
straight year of record-setting improvement in aca- 
demic preparation and overall diversity. 

• UNC students have a long tradition of out- 
standing achievement. Thirty-five have been 
awarded the Rhodes Scholarship since it was creat- 
ed in 1902, including the first U.S. black woman 
recipient. Twelve Chapel Hill students have won 
the Rhodes since 1980. 

LEARNING 

• The 2002 freshman class is the third wave of 
Carolina students required to own laptop computers 
as part of the Carolina Computing Initiative. In 
2000, 3,400 Chapel Hill freshmen became the 
largest class in the United States ever required to 
own laptops during the first year of the require- 
ment. Students can access a world of knowledge at 
their fingertips and communicate with faculty and 
peers with just a few keystrokes. 

• Carolina is making it easier for students and 
others with laptops to connect to the Internet, e- 
mail and course materials - whether they are in 
classrooms, labs, libraries and nearby outdoor sites 
- thanks to wireless technology. Wireless access 
points have been installed at key campus locations, 
allowing students with adapter cards to connect to 
cyberspace without physically plugging into the 
campus network. 

• This fall, Carolina becomes the only university 
in the state and one of just a handful nationwide 
offering a bachelor's degree in the cutting-edge, 
rapidly evolving field of information science. 

• UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School has 
joined four other top business schools in China, 
Brazil, Mexico and the Netherlands to design and

year-old jigsaw puzzle. 



deliver OneMBA, a premier global executive MBA 
program that is radically different from programs 
offered by other leading business schools. 

RESEARCH 

• Fiscal 2001 overall research funding at UNC 
topped the $438.7 million mark for contracts and 
grants awarded for research, teaching and public 
service — an increase of 17 percent over the previ- 
ous fiscal year. 

• Much of the increase resulted from a 14 per- 
cent jump in National Institutes of Health funding. 
UNC faculty received $236.8 million in NIH fund- 
ing — up from $207 million in 2000 — ranking 12th 
overall among private and public universities 
nationwide, and up from 13th last year. 

• Carolina just cracked the top 20 list, as com- 
piled by the National Science Foundation, of 
national universities receiving federal science and 
engineering funding in fiscal 2000. That achieve- 
ment is remarkable considering Carolina has no 
engineering school. 

• Carolina has committed at least $245 million 
over the next decade to the emerging field of 
genome sciences. The campus wide initiative, 
which represents public and private investments, 
will allow Carolina to be a driving force in deter- 
mining how the genomics revolution will change 
the way we treat human diseases, design drugs and 
grow crops.

Carolina football plays its home games at Kenan Memorial Stadium, one of 
the most picturesque athletic venues in America. Kenan Stadium has been the 
home of the Tar Heels since 1927 and the thrill of playing in or attending a 
game there is as exhilarating now as it was when it was first constructed. 

The stadium's beauty, charm and simple elegance have not been diminished 
with the expansion project that added nearly 8,000 seats, a state-of-the-art foot- 
ball facility, chancellor's box and preferred seating box. The renovation and 
expansion project was financed through a combination of private contributions 



and storied history of the sport in Chapel Hill are on display. The 1 8 Carolina 
players who have been honored by placing their names and numbers on display 
in the stadium are also featured in the Hall of Honor. Special plaques, flags and 
an audio-visual presentation on each player are highlighted. 

The James A. Heavner Theater was made possible by a special gift by the 
former executive producer of the Tar Heels Sports Network and president of 
Vilcom. The theater is a 30-person mini-theater equipped with surround sound 
and seven dramatic videos presenting the history of UNC football.

Considering its majestic set- 
ting among the Carolina 
pines, many observers say 
Kenan Stadium is the most 
beautiful football facility 
in the country. 

through the Educational Foundation 
and bonded indebtedness from the ath- 
letic department through the sale of 
revenue-generating bonds. The 
Educational Foundation and its mem- 
bers have committed more than $50 
million to the project. 

Considering its majestic setting 
among the Carolina pines, many 
observers say Kenan Stadium is the 
most beautiful football facility in the 
country. One national sports magazine 
rated Kenan one of the five best 
places in America to watch a college 
football game. For scenery, atmos- 
phere and charm, it cannot be sur- 
passed. 

The stadium has 
been expanded several 
times since its comple- 
tion in 1927. In each 
instance, though, great 
care was taken to keep 
its fundamental beauty 
intact. The addition of 
the Frank H. Kenan 
Football Center and the 
North Side Stadium 
Preferred Seating Box 
have further enhanced the 
stadium's status as a cam- 
pus landmark. 

"Kenan Stadium brings 
back so many memories." 
says Head Coach John 
Bunting. "So many players 
have given so much of 
themselves on that field. I 
had some great times as a 
player in Kenan Stadium and 
as head coach, I want to help 
produce many more memo- 
ries for our fans. In my opin- 
ion, it is the best place to 
experience college football." 

The Kenan Football Center houses the Carolina football program, including 
the locker rooms, weight room, training room, equipment room, players' 
lounge, computer labs and study areas, 100-plus seat auditorium, coaches' 
offices, theater and Hall of Honor. 

The Hall of Honor, located on the ground floor, is a multi-media history of

A number of rooms in the Kenan Football Center have been dedicated in 
the honor or memory of Carolina's benefactors, fans and athletic personali- 
ties. They include the Brinkley Lounge, the fourth floor reception area 
named for Harvey M. Brinkley Jr.; the Don McCauley/Paul Miller Head 
Coach's Suite; the Norman M. (Buddy) Black Jr. Lounge, the fourth floor 
hospitality area; the Oscar Davenport/Chris Keldorf Quarterback Meeting 
Room as given by Bob Biggerstaff; the Jo Allison Clary Smith Weight 
Room; the Carolina Football Players' Locker Room, named in behalf of the 
more than 400 former Tar Heels who donated more than $2 million to the 
project; Koury Box North, box seating on the north side of the stadium 
named for Maurice J. Koury; the John W. Pope Academic Support 
Facility; the John W. Pope Stadium Box, a stadium box on the north side; 
the John W. Swofford Auditorium and the Jimmy W. Garrell coaches 
meeting room. 

The expansion project, in which great care was taken to ensure that the 
surrounding environment would be altered as little as possible, ties the 
north and south concourses to either end of the lower deck via the third 
level of the Kenan Center, making fan movement around the stadium 
much easier. 

The football center is named in honor of the late Frank H. Kenan, one of the 
school's most generous benefactors. Kenan was a Durham resident and chief 
executive officer of Kenan Transport Company in Chapel Hill. He passed away 
at age 83 in 1 996. 

Kenan, a 1935 Carolina graduate, was the great-great-grandson of General 
James Kenan, a member of the University's founding board of trustees. An 
Atlanta native, Kenan had a tremendous impact on the growth of the

University. He served on 
many campus boards, including the Board of Visitors and the 
Educational Foundation Board of Directors. 

In recent years the William R. Kenan Jr. Charitable Trust, of which he was a 
trustee, has donated more than $100 million to schools in the state's consolidat- 
ed university system, including Carolina, NC State and the N.C. School of the 
Arts. Among other things, the trust funds 92 William R. Kenan Jr. 
Professorships at 56 colleges and universities nationwide. 

He served on the steering committee of Carolina's Bicentennial Campaign, 
the University's largest fund-raising effort. Gifts by him, his family and the 
trust during the campaign exceeded $31 million. The largest portion of that was 
targeted for the business school. In 1991 the school was renamed the Kenan-

The preferred seating box that rises above the second deck of 
the grandstand on the north side of the stadium has outdoor 
seating for almost 1 ,200 spectators. That includes the 
Chancellor's Box on the second level ol the box 45 feet above 
the ground. The fourth level, 68 feet high, has outdoor seating 
lor more than 1 ,000, plus concessions and a 7500 square foot 
lounge. There is a smaller lounge and food prep areas on the 
third floor. 

The Kenan Football Center and preferred seating box are 

the predominant changes m a multi-year renovation plan that 

began in 1995. A new playing field was installed that spring.

The new turf includes an improved drainage system beneath the field that 
drains through the field itself rather than off the sides of the field as in the past. 
Prior to the 1996 season the restrooms and concession stands were expanded 
and renovated. 

Another significant stadium expansion took place prior to 1988 and 
involved adding 2,000 choice seats between the 40-yard lines where the press 
box and chancellor's box formerly stood. A new press box was constructed on 
top of the upper deck on the stadium's south side. It is a one-level elongated 
structure, running from 10-yard line to 10-yard line. 

Also part of the 1987-88 project were a permanent lighting system, a chan- 
cellor's lounge on the north side of the field and a football lettermen's lounge 
on the south side. The lights are part of a General Electric low-mount system 
which minimizes the height of the lightpoles. Cost of the entire project was $7 



Jr. Charitable Trust, which was established by his will, donated $1 ,000,000 to 
enlarge and modernize Kenan Fieldhouse. 

In 1988 the Kenan Trust made another $1,000,000 gift to complete the new 
chancellor's box on the North Side. Another lasting memory of William R. 
Kenan Jr. is the Kenan Athletic Scholarship Endowment valued at over 
$1 ,000,000. Each year a student athlete is awarded a full scholarship from this 
fund. 

Besides giving the stadium to the University, Mr. Kenan also sponsored and 
financed the famous Kenan Professorships. He was awarded the honorary 
degree of LL.D. by his alma mater in 1944. 

In the first game played there, Carolina defeated Davidson, 27-0, on 
November 12, 1927. 

Carolina's all-time record at Kenan Stadium is 240-142-16. The most points

"I can say that here at the

million. It was funded by private gifts and bonds. 

William Rand Kenan Jr. deserves the credit for originally making the stadi- 
um a part of the University. He was born in North Carolina in 1873 and gradu- 
ated from Carolina in 1894. An international industrialist, Kenan discovered 
carbide and made monumental progress in the field of chemistry. During his 
business career he was president of The Florida East Coast Railroad, The 
Florida East Coast Hotel Company, The West Palm Beach Water Company and 
the Florida East Coast Car Ferry Company. 

He was a director of Florida Power and Light Company and built the first 
power plant in Miami in the early 1900s. 

The stadium was built as a memorial to his parents, William R. Kenan and 
Mary Hargrave Kenan. Construction began in November 1926 and was com- 
pleted the following August. Complete cost of the stadium and accompanying 
fieldhouse was $303,000. 

Originally, the stadium was to be built through funds raised by alumni dona- 
tions and by June 1926, a group of nearly 40 alumni had contributed $27,926. 
At this time, however, a copy of the prospectus and plan of financing the stadi- 
um came into the hands of Mr. Kenan who expressed an interest in the propos- 
al. Kenan was considering establishing a memorial to his parents and the 
pressing need for a stadium and the possibilities of the beauty, dignity and per- 
manence it presented, suggested to him that the benefaction he contemplated 
may well take the form of a memorial stadium. The Stadium Committee 
immediately endorsed his proposal and on the very day in November 1926 on 
which Kenan visited the planned site, he announced his financial gift to build 
the stadium. 

Mr. Kenan remained very interested in Kenan Stadium throughout his life- 
time. In the 1950s he gave a $1 ,000.000 contribution to construct a second 
deck on the stadium. After Mr. Kenan's death in 1965 the William R. Kenan 



scored by the Tar Heels in Kenan came in the third game played there as 
Carolina whipped Wake Forest, 65-0, in the 1928 season opener. 

The Tar Heels have a 42-17 mark at Kenan Stadium in the last 10 seasons. 

As originally built, the stadium seated 24,000. However, in 1963 the bene- 
factor added portable stands and then an upper deck to the permanent stands, 
which increased capacity to 48,000. That was expanded to 50,000 in 1979, 
52.000 in 1988, 57.500 in 1997 and 60,000 in 1998. 

At the East end of the stadium is the Kenan Fieldhouse, home of the 
Student-Athlete Development Center. A 20,000 square foot building, it is a 
one-of-a-kind facility. For study purposes, it contains a language lab, video 
room, computer lab, theatre-style lecture hall, several reading rooms and 
numerous tutorial rooms. UNC's academic counseling staff has the advantage 
of using the most modern techniques in assisting student-athletes. 

Capacity crowds have come to be expected at Kenan. In 1997, the Tar Heels 
played in front of a record-shattering crowd of 62,000 on Nov. 8, 1997, as 
fifth-ranked Carolina battled No. 2 Florida State. The largest crowd to watch a 
game prior to the most recent major expansion was 54,300 as Carolina defeat- 
ed N.C. State, 31-17, in 1994. 

The 1983 season saw another first in the stadium — a game played under 
artificial lights. The Carolina-Duke game was played in the late afternoon so it 
could be televised throughout the ACC area. Portable lights were brought in 
since the second half was played after sunset. Portable lights were also used in 
the 1987 Clemson game which was televised nationally by ESPN. 

The 1991 season opener versus Cincinnati and the Clemson game, which 
was televised nationally by ESPN, were the first true night games ever played 
at Kenan Stadium.

TAR HEELS COMPLETE 
TURNAROUND WITH PEACH 
BOWL WIN OVER AUBURN 

After starting the season with three con- 
secutive losses. North Carolina completed 
the greatest turnaround in school history, 
winning eight of its last 10 games, includ- 
ing a 16-10 victory over Auburn in the 
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. The Tar Heels, 
led by first-year head coach John Bunting, 
finished 8-5 overall, 5-3 (3rd) in the 
Atlantic Coast Conference and earned their 
first bowl trip since 1998. It was the 10th 
winning season in the last 1 1 years. 

Carolina dropped its first three games to 
Oklahoma. Maryland and Texas before put- 
ting together a five-game win streak that 
included a 41-9 rout of Florida State and a 
dominating 38-3 victory at Clemson. The 
FSU game was Bunting's first win at 
Carolina and was UNC's first win over the 
Seminoles in 13 meetings. After falling to 
Georgia Tech and Wake Forest, Carolina 
closed the regular season with wins over 
Duke and SMU to earn the Peach Bowl 
bid. 

BUNTING WINS THE MOST OF 
ANY FIRST-YEAR TAR HEEL 
COACH 

Head coach John Bunting won more 
games (8) in his first season at North 
Carolina than any other first-year coach in 
school history. Carl Torbush (1998) and 
Carl Suavely (1934) each won seven games 
in their first seasons. Bunting, a 1972 
North Carolina graduate, was the first for- 
mer letterwinner to coach the Tar Heels 
since 1956. 



PEPPERS WINS LOMBARDI TROPHY 
& BEDNARIK AWARD 

Defensive end Julius Peppers became the first 
Tar Heel to win a major college football award 
when he was named the 2001 Rotary Lombardi 
Award winner in Houston on Dec. 5. The 
Lombardi Trophy is given annually to the nation's 
best lineman. Peppers beat out fellow defensive 
ends Dwight Freeney of Syracuse and Alex Brown 
of Florida for the honor. 

A day after winning the Lombardi Trophy, 
Peppers flew to Orlando where he was presented 
the Chuck Bednarik Award as the nation's top over- 
all defensive player. 

Peppers also was named the Chevrolet National 
Defensive Player of the Year and was one of five 
finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which is 
given to the nation's top overall defensive player 
by the Charlotte Touchdown Club. 

In 2001 , Peppers had 63 tackles, including 19 
tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. He also led the team 
in interceptions. Peppers finished his three-year 
Carolina career second on the school's all-time list 
in sacks (30.5) and tackles for losses (53).

Peppers was a unanimous All-America selection 
and his No. 49 jersey will be added to the facade of 
Kenan Stadium in 2002. He is just the second 
unanimous first-team All-America in school history 
and the first since Lawrence Taylor in 1980. He 
was named first-team All-America by the 
Associated Press, The Sporting News. Football 
News, Walter Camp Football Foundation, 
American Football Coaches Association (AFCA). 
Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) 
and CNNSI.com. Peppers is the first Tar Heel to 
be named consensus first-team All-America at 
UNC since defensive end Greg Ellis, linebacker 
Brian Simmons and cornerback Dre' Bly earned 
that honor in 1997. 

PEPPERS, SIMS AMONG FIRST SIX 
NFL DRAFT PICKS 

Defensive linemen Julius Peppers and Ryan 
Sims were two of the top six picks in the 2002 
NFL Draft. Peppers was the No. 2 overall pick by 
the Carolina Panthers and Sims was taken with the 
sixth pick by the Kansas City Chiefs. Peppers and 
Sims were among six Tar Heels selected. 
Linebacker David Thornton was taken in the fourth 
round by Indianapolis, while Joey Evans, Ronald 
Curry and Quincy Monk were picked in the sev- 
enth round. There were more players taken in the 
NFL Draft from North Carolina than any other 
school in the country.

2002 CAROLINA FOOTBALL 




In 2001, quarterback Darian Durant set Carolina 
freshman records for touchdown passes (17), 
completions (142), passing yards (1,843) and 
total offense (1,971). 



THORNTON ONE OF BEST STORIES 

David Thornton, a former walk-on who was 
awarded a scholarship prior to the start of the 200 1 
season, blossomed into one of the Tar Heels' top 
play makers on defense in 200 1 . Thornton led the 
team with 13 1 total tackles, was second with 10 
tackles for loss and third with three sacks. He had 
double digits in tackles in seven games this season, 
including a season-high 17 against Wake Forest. 
He entered the 2001 season with just 24 career 
tackles, including 16 tackles as a special teams 
player in 2000. 

Thornton was voted UNC's defensive MVP and 
earned second-team All-ACC honors and he was 
selected in the fourth round of the 2002 NFL Draft 
by the Indianapolis Colts. 

AIKEN COMPLETES BREAKOUT 
SEASON 

Junior wide receiver Sam Aiken had eight touch- 
down catches in 2001 .just one shy of the school 
record of nine set by Marcus Wall in 1994. Aiken 
had one touchdown catch against FSU, East 
Carolina. Virginia and Wake Forest and two touch- 
down receptions against both Georgia Tech and 
Duke. The Kenansville, N.C., native led the team 
with 46 catches for 789 yards, a team-leading 17.6 
yards per catch. Aiken was fifth in the ACC in 
receiving yards per game. 

TAR HEELS TIE TD PASS RECORD 

Carolina quarterbacks threw 25 touchdown pass- 
es in 2001 , tying the school record established in 
1996. Darian Durant had 17 touchdown passes and 
Ronald Curry had eight. Curry's 43-yard pass to 
Chesley Borders in the SMU game tied the record. 
In 1996, Chris Keldorf tossed a single-season 
school-record 23 touchdown passes and Oscar 
Davenport had two. 



Carolina's 239.3 yards passing per game was the 
fourth-highest per game average in school history 
and the most since the 1997 Tar Heels set the 
school record with 261 .8 yards a game. 

DURANT HAS IMPRESSIVE FRESH- 
MAN CAMPAIGN 

Redshirt freshman quarterback Darian Durant 
had one of the best offensive seasons in UNC his- 
tory despite starting just two games ami splitting 
time with Ronald Curry in 1 1 games. 

In 2001 , Durant established Carolina freshman 
records for touchdown passes (17), completions 
(142), passing yards ( 1 ,843) and total offense 
(1,971). 

Durant's 17 touchdown passes were the third- 
highest single-season total in UNC history. Chris 
Keldorf set the school record with 23 TD passes in 
1996 and Matt Rupee had 18 touchdown passes in 
1979. 

Durant was second in the ACC and 12th in the 
nation in pass efficiency (149.29). Florida State 
redshirt freshman Chris Rix was the only freshman 
in the country with a better efficiency rating 
(156.6). Durant completed 63.7 percent (142 of 
223) of his attempts. 

Durant was named the ACC's Rookie of the 
Week six times and finished second behind Chris 
Rix for ACC Rookie of the Year honors. 

CURRY'S RECORD-BREAKING 
CAREER 

Ronald Curry had an outstanding career at UNC. 
Curry holds UNC career records for total offense, 
passing yards, rushing yards by a quarterback and 
rushing touchdowns by a quarterback. He also is 
second in career pass completion and fourth in 
touchdown passes. In 2000, he established a sin- 
gle-season school record with 2,676 total yards. 

Curry started 10 games in 2001 and was 62 of 
134 passes for 1 ,005 yards and eight touchdowns. 
He also rushed for 253 yards and three touch- 
downs. 

He earned offensive MVP honors in the 1998 
Las Vegas Bowl and the 2001 Peach Bowl. 

WIDE RECEIVERS COME UP BIG 

After struggling earlier in 2001 . Carolina's wide 
receivers made significant strides in the final two 
months of the season. After scoring no touch- 
downs in the first three games of the year, 
Carolina's top three receivers - Sam Aiken, Kory 
Bailey and Bosley Allen - scored 18 touchdowns 
in the next eight games. 

In addition, a UNC receiver had at least 100 
yards receiving in four of the last five games. 
Allen had back-to-back 100-yard games at 
Clemson and vs. Georgia Tech and Sam Aiken had 
back-to-back 100-yard games vs. Wake Forest and 
Duke. 

Three Tar Heel receivers made at least 39 recep- 
tions, including 46 by Sam Aiken, 44 by Kory 
Bailey and 39 by Bosley Allen. The last time 
Carolina had three receivers with at least 30 catch- 
es was in 1997. It was just the second time 
Carolina has ever had two receivers with at least 40 
receptions. The other was in 1995 when Leon 
Johnson, a tailback, had 54 catches and wide 
receiver Octavus Barnes had 53. 



UNC LEADS THE ACC IN TOTAL 
DEFENSE 

Carolina ranked first in the ACC and 15th in the 
nation in total defense in 2001 . allowing just 305.3 
yards per contest. The Tar Heels were also first in 
the conference and eighth in the nation in pass effi- 
ciency defense. In other ACC defensive categories, 
Carolina was first in pass defense (yards per game), 
second in opponents' third-down conversions, third 
in rushing defense, and third in scoring defense. 
Carolina has finished first in the ACC in total 
defense 12 times. The last time Carolina was No. 1 
in total defense was 1997. 

Carolina held both Florida State and NC State to 
just nine points in wins during the 2001 season It 
was just the fifth time since 1982 that the 
Seminoles had been held to less than 10 points. 




TAKE A NOTE 

■ Carolina won eight of its 
final 10 games of the 2002 
season. The two losses 
were by a combined total 
of eight points (1 vs. Wake 
Forest, 7 at Georgia Tech) 

■ Carolina won its fifth 
consecutive bowl game with a 16-10 victory in the 
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. The Tar Heels are one of only 
three teams to win their last five bowl games. LSU 
and Miami (Fla.) are the other two teams. Carolina 
won the 1995 Carquest Bowl (20-10 vs. Arkansas), the 
1997 Gator Bowl (20-13 vs. West Virginia), the 1998 
Gator Bowl (42-3 vs. Virginia Tech), the 1998 Las 
Vegas Bowl (20-13 vs. San Diego State) and the 2001 
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl (16-10 vs. Auburn). 

■ 13 Tar Heels, including starters Kory Bailey, 
Merceda Perry, Billy-Dee Greenwood. David Thornton, 
Quincy Monk, Joey Evans and Jeff Reed graduated 
on Dec. 20, 2001 

■ Carolina was 8-0 after head coach John Bunting 
installed a rotation system with quarterbacks Ronald 
Curry and Darian Durant. 

■ Carolina played eight teams that earned postseason 
bowl bids in 2002. That equaled the highest number 
of any school in the nation. 

■ Carolina won eight games in a season for the first 
time since going 11-1 in 1997. 

■ Over the last 10 years. Carolina has played in eight 
bowl games. Florida State is the only ACC team to 
have played in more bowl games. 

■ Place-kicker Jeff Reed set a school record for con- 
secutive extra points without a miss (66) in 2002. 

■ Ronald Curry established the school record for 
career total offense in a 24-21 win over ECU. 

■ Curry played in two bowl games during his career 
and was named MVP in each of those games. Curry 
capped his amazing career with offensive MVP honors 
in the 2001 Peach Bowl. As a freshman, he earned 
MVP honors after his performance in UNC's 20-13 win 
over San Diego State in the 1998 Las Vegas Bowl. 

■ Carolina had more players (6) taken in the 2002 
NFL Draft than any other team in the ACC. 

■ In 2001, Carolina was 5-1 at Kenan Stadium, its 
best record at home since 1997. 

■ Carolina had 43 pass plays longer than 20 yards,

■ August 25, 2001 
Memorial Stadium 
Norman, Okla. 
TV: ESPN 



Defending national champion 
Oklahoma capitalized on five 
first-half turnovers to build a 41- 
7 lead, then held off a late 
charge by North Carolina to post 
a 41-27 season-opening win in 
the Hispanic College Classic. 
Carolina aided the Sooners' 
cause by losing four fumbles and an interception in the opening quar- 
ter and a half. Oklahoma returned a fumble, interception and kickoff 
for touchdowns in the first half. 

The Tar Heels dominated the national champions in the second half 
and finished the game with a statistical advantage in first downs and 
total offense yards. Carolina gained 290 yards to 286 for the Sooners 
and had 20 first downs, eight more than Oklahoma. 

The Sooners' 286 yards were the fewer than any total they had in 
their 2000 national title season. Carolina's defense, led by end Julius 
Peppers and linebacker David Thornton, did not allow Oklahoma to 
score a point on its last nine possessions. 

Redshirt freshman quarterback Darian Durant came off the bench to 
rally the Tar Heels in the second half. Durant completed 12 of 26 
passes for 1 52 yards and two touchdowns and added another 39 yards 
on the ground. Durant was Carolina's leading ground gainer, as well. 

The Sooners jumped out to a 17-0 lead just 3:39 into the game. 
Carolina fumbled on the second play, leading to a 25-yard field goal 
by Tim Duncan. 

Oklahoma then went 46 yards on three plays, capped by a 4-yard 
run by Quinton Griffin. The Tar Heels fumbled the ensuing kickoff 
and OU recovered at the UNC 19-yard line. Four plays later, Renaldo 
Works scored from seven yards out and it was 17-0 Oklahoma with 
1 1 :21 to play in the first quarter. 

Just over seven minutes later, UNC tailback Andre' Williams fum- 
bled and OU All-America linebacker Rocky Calmus scooped up the 
loose ball and raced 14 yards for a touchdown and a 24-0 lead. 

Peppers got the Tar Heels on the board with 1 :48 to play in the first 
when he intercepted a screen pass and dashed 29 yards for a score, his 
second career interception return for a touchdown. 

However, the Sooners' promptly answered as Antwone Savage took 
a short kickoff and went 88 yards for a score and a 3 1 -7 lead. 

Early in the second quarter, Oklahoma comerback Derrick Strait 
intercepted a Ronald Curry pass and raced 47 yards for another score. 

Oklahoma tacked on its final points of the first half, and as it turned 
out, the game, on a 22-yard field goal by Duncan. That score followed 
yet another UNC turnover, this time a fumbled snap at UNC's own 3- 
yard line. 

The Tar Heels scored the game's final 20 points. Comerback 
Michael Waddell returned a punt 89 yards for a touchdown late in the 
second quarter to cut Oklahoma's lead to 41-14. The return was the 
second-longest in Carolina history. 

Durant took over for Curry at quarterback on the third series of the 
second half. He connected with Chesley Borders on a 26-yard TD 
pass early in the fourth quarter. Borders caught ball over the middle 
and raced around the corner for the score. 

On Carolina's next possession. Durant led the Tar Heels to the end 
zone again. On 4th-and-10 at the Sooner 45, Durant found Kory

■ September 1 , 200 1 
Byrd Stadium 
College Park, Md. 



f ""V -~ 






Sophomore tailback Bruce 
Perry rushed for 1 16 yards and 
punter Brooks Barnard won the 
field position battle as he aver- 
aged 50.4 yards per punt in lead- 
ing the Maryland Terrapins to a 
23-7 win over the Tar Heels. It 
was the ACC opener for both schools. 

Barnard was the game's most valuable performer as he repeatedly 
pinned Carolina deep in its own territory. He dropped six of his eight 
punts inside the 20-yard line and forced the Tar Heels to begin drives 
at their own 1 , 9. 10, 14. 1 1 and 16-yard lines. Carolina's average 
starting field position for the game was its own 22-yard line. 

For the second consecutive week, UNC gained more total offense 
yards, yet lost by double figures. At Oklahoma, five first-half 
turnovers led to defeat. At Maryland, an ineffective offense and poor 
field position resulted in the loss. 

Carolina outgained the Terps, 276-247. The Tar Heels gained 4.4 
yards per play and held the Terps to just 3.4 yards per snap. 

However, Maryland had 17 first downs, seven more than UNC. 

The Tar Heels scored on their first play from scrimmage as sopho- 
more tailback Willie Parker raced around left end and split the second- 
ary for 77 yards and a touchdown. It was Parker's longest career carry, 
equaled the 17th-longest in Carolina history, and was the longest run 
by a Tar Heel since 1993. 

It was, unfortunately, 28 percent of Carolina's total yardage output 
for the entire game. 

Two series later, Maryland pulled even, converting two third downs 
en route to a 20-yard scoring pass from Shaun Hill to wideout Jafar 
Williams. The scoring drive followed a 53-yard Barnard punt that the 
Terps killed at the 1-yard line. Carolina had to punt from its own end 
zone, and the Terps took over at the UNC 32. Facing 3rd-and-12 from 
the 20, Hill hit Williams on a drag route and Williams raced past cor- 
nerback Errol Hood to the end zone for the score. 

The Terps took the lead for good early in the second quarter. 
Barnard dropped another punt at the UNC 10-yard line and Carolina 
was penalized back to the 5. On third down, safety Tyrone Stewart 
broke past the blocking and tripped Parker in the end zone for a safe- 
ty- 

Neither team was able to effectively move the ball over the next two 
quarters. Redshirt freshman Darian Durant replaced Ronald Curry at 
quarterback midway through the third period, and completed his first 
three pass attempts for 27 yards. His next throw, however, on 4th-and- 
4 from the Maryland 38, was intercepted by safety Tony Jackson. 

The Terps marched 65 yards in 10 plays and scored on a 5-yard pass 
from Hill to Scooter Monroe. The key play of the scoring drive was a 
12-yard run by Perry on 3rd-and-5 from the Carolina 19. 

Durant was intercepted on a tipped ball on the ensuing possession, 
giving the Terps the ball on their own 46-yard line. Maryland went 54 
yards in eight plays for the game-clinching touchdown. Hill converted 
another third down by rushing for 11 yards on an option run. Marc 
Riley capped the drive by scoring from a yard out. 

The loss marred another fine effort by Carolina defensive end Julius 
Peppers, who had four tackles for losses for 21 yards, including three

Texas scored 30 unanswered 
points over the final 35 minutes 
and held Carolina to just 21 1 
total yards as the Longhoms 
defeated the Tar Heels, 44-14, 
before 83.106 fans. 

Nathan Vasher set a Texas 
school record by returning eight UNC punts for 153 yards, including a 
backbreaking, 44-yard return for a touchdown early in the fourth quar- 
ter. 

Dusty Mangum kicked three field goals for the Longhoms, includ- 
ing a 5 1 -yarder and a pair of late second-quarter kicks that gave Texas 
a 20-14 lead at halftime. 

Texas scored in a variety of ways, although Carolina held the 
Longhoms' highly-regarded passing game without a touchdown. 
Texas benefitted from an interception return for a touchdown, a punt 
return for a score, a long punt return that set up a short rushing touch- 
down and a safety. 

It was the second straight game in which the Tar Heels had allowed 
a safety. 

Simms completed 17 of 35 passes for only 167 yards. His longest 
completions of the day were 19-yarders to wideouts Roy Williams and 
Sloan Thomas. 

The Longhoms gained 326 yards, despite converting just four of 15 
third-down chances. 

The Longhoms took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter when defensive 
end Cory Redding intercepted Ronald Curry's pass and dashed 22 
yards down the sideline for the score. 

Texas forced Carolina to punt on the ensuing possession, and Vasher 
returned it 59 yards to the Tar Heel 5-yard line. Two plays later, 
Simms dove in from the one for a 14-0 lead. 
UNC promptly answered with a long touchdown drive to cut the

Texas lead in half. Curry hit three long passes - for 13 yards to 
Chesley Borders. 20 yards to Sam Aiken and 27 yards to Borders - 
and scored on a dazzling, 20-yard run through the heart of the Texas 
defense. 

Early in the second quarter, Vasher fumbled a John Lafferty punt. 
UNC fullback Madison Hedgecock recovered the ball at the Longhorn 
17-yard line. Andre' Williams, who finished the day with 50 yards, 
gained eight and nine yards on back-to-back plays to tie the game at 
14. 

Texas special teams and defense dominated from that point forward, 
however. Vasher set up a Mangum field goal with a 3 1 -yard punt 
return. Mangum added 49-yarder as the second quarter ended to send 
Texas to the locker room with a 20-14 advantage. 

Carolina forced the Longhoms to punt on their first two series of 
the third quarter, but Texas upped its lead to 26-14 on a 12-play, 89- 
yard march later in the third quarter. The Longhoms cashed in on two 
of their four third-down conversions on the drive, which was capped 
by a 7-yard touchdown run by Cedric Benson. 

Texas added a field goal, safety, punt return for touchdown, and 
touchdown run after an interception to provide the final margin. The 
Longhoms tacked on their final points of the day on a 12-yard run 
with 36 seconds to play. 

Carolina converted just three of 16 third-down opportunities and 
allowed five quarterback sacks.

Chapel Hill, N.C. 
TV: ABC 



Darian Durant passed lor two 
scores, Ronald Curry threw for a 
touchdown and ran for another 
and Julius Peppers led a 
Carolina defense that allowed 
just 34 second-half yards as the 
Tar Heels whipped sixth-ranked 
Florida State, 41-9. 
The contest was UNC's first home game of the season and came a 
week after its game against SMU was postponed due to the September 
1 1 terrorist attacks on the United States. 

The win was John Bunting's first as UNC's head coach and was 
Carolina's first in 13 meetings with the Seminoles. The loss was 
Florida State's third in ACC competition and the Seminoles' worst 
regular-season defeat in 16 years. 

Durant and Curry combined to throw for 232 yards and three touch- 
downs. Carolina amassed 301 total yards and held the Seminoles to 
just 224 yards, 190 of which came in the first two quarters. 

It was just the fifth time in Florida State's last 235 games the 
Seminoles were held to less than 10 points. 

The Tar Heels forced five turnovers, registered five quarterback 
sacks and held the Seminoles to just four of 16 on third down conver- 
sions. 

Peppers dominated the line of scrimmage as he made 10 tackles, 
including four for losses, one of which was his 25th career sack, and 
had an interception, his second of the season. 
The game began with a dominant defensive presence on both sides 

as the first six 
offensive posses- 
sions failed to pro- 
duce a first down. 
The Seminoles did 
record a first down 
on their fourth 
series, but on the 
ensuing play, 
Carolina linebacker 
Quincy Monk 
stripped FSU quar- 
terback Chris Rix 
of the ball after an 
1 1 -yard run and the 
Tar Heels took over 
at their 39-yard 
line.

3rd-and-4 play from the FSU 27. On the next play, Durant hit Aiken 
in the right flat and Aiken somersaulted into the end zone for a 7-0 
lead. It was Carolina's first lead over the Seminoles since 1993. 

Midway through the second quarter, Rix dodged a corner blitz and 
found Talman Gardner for a 29-yard touchdown to tie the game at 7-7. 
The Seminoles then forced UNC to punt, but center Greg Warren 
snapped the ball out of the end zone for a safety and a 9-7 Seminole 
lead. 

The second half was all Carolina, but the biggest play of the game 
may have come on the second play of the third quarter. Durant was 
intercepted by comerback Stanford Samuels, but UNC fullback 
Madison Hedgecock forced Samuels to fumble and tailback Andre' 
Williams recovered to return the ball to the Tar Heels. Five plays later, 
Durant found Chesley Borders wide open for a 52-yard touchdown to 
give Carolina the lead for good. 

A pair of Jeff Reed field goals in the third quarter increased UNC's 
lead to 20-9. The two field goals were sandwiched around a holding 
penalty by Florida State that wiped out an 85-yard touchdown pass by 
Rix. 

Curry extended the lead to 27-9 when he scrambled away from 
pressure and threw an off-balance pass to Kory Bailey for a 53-yard 
score early in the final quarter. 

Carolina added touchdown runs by Williams ( 1 1 yards) and Cum 
(one yard).

Freshman quarterback Darian 
Durant connected on a pair of 
touchdown passes to senior wide 
receiver Kory Bailey and the Tar 
Heel defense held its second 
straight opponent to just nine 
points as Carolina defeated NC 
State. 17-9. 

The win was UNC's second in a row and the first road win for head 
coach John Bunting. The victory was Carolina's fourth in a row on 
NC State's home turf and was its eighth in the last nine games against 
the Wolfpack. 

Durant was at the helm for all three of Carolina's scoring drives, 
although he alternated at quarterback with senior starter Ronald Curry. 
Durant completed 10 of 14 passes for 128 yards, and added 46 yards 
on nine rushes. 

Linebacker Quincy Monk ( 12 tackles) led a Carolina defense that 
thwarted the Wolfpack on 12 of 15 third down conversions and all 
three of the Pack's fourth down conversion chances. 

Typical of an emotion-filled rivalry game, both teams were flagged 
10 times, but none of Carolina's infractions gave NC State a first 
down. 

Carolina scored first and never trailed. Midway through the opening 
period. Monk forced a fumble that Dexter Reid recovered at the NC 
State 27-yard line. Moments later, Durant hit Bailey for 14 yards and 
a 7-0 lead. 

Two series later, Rivers led the Pack 
71 yards in six plays for a score. Rivers 
hit Cotra Jackson for 28 yards and threw 
a 23-yard touchdown pass to Dovonte 
Edwards. The extra point attempt sailed 
wide right, however, and Carolina 
retained a 7-6 lead. 

Neither team scored again in the first 
half. The final nine offensive possessions 
in the half produced four punts, three 
turnovers, and a missed field goal. 

Durant led Carolina on an 1 1 -play, 59- 
yard third-quarter march that ended with 
Jeff Reed kicking a 36-yard field goal to 
extend UNC's lead to 10-6. The key play 
on the drive was a 28-yard completion 
from Durant to Sam Aiken on a 3rd-and- 
8 play from the UNC 34-yard line. 

The Carolina defense forced the Pack 
to punt after three plays, and the Tar 
Heels again capitalized for points with 
another 1 1 -play drive. 

Durant completed all five of his pass 
attempts on the drive for 7 1 yards and 
capped the series with a 19-yard scoring 
pass to Bailey. Durant had earlier com- 
pletions on the drive to Bailey ( 14 yards) 
Aiken (8), Borders (17) and Aiken (7).

in the fourth quarter and had several 
chances to extend their lead. However, 
NC State recovered a fumble at its own

mistake into three points. After the 
turnover. Rivers had completions of 21 
and 22 yards on consecutive plays to 
advance to the Carolina 19-yard line, 
but the Tar Heels held NC State to a 
field goal. 

On the next series, Curry marched 
UNC to the Wolfpack 27, but a sack 
took UNC out of field goal range. 

NC State had two more chances to 
tie the game, advancing to the Carolina 
41- and 26-yard lines in the final min- 
utes, but could not score. Defensive 
end Joey Evans had a sack to stop the 
next to last drive and the Pack's last 
chance was halted when cornerback 
Michael Waddell tackled wide receiver 
Troy Graham a yard short on fourth 
down with 28 seconds to play.

Freshman quarterback Darian 
Durant passed for two touch- 
downs, Ronald Curry set the 
UNC career total offense record 
and Derrick Johnson made a 
game-saving tackle as North 
Carolina defeated East Carolina, 
24-21. 

Durant and Curry once again shared playing time at quarterback 
and combined for 21 completions in 33 attempts for 278 yards, three 
touchdowns and no interceptions. They also rushed for 52 yards. 

Curry had 167 yards of total offense. He connected with Kory 
Bailey for a 37-yard gain in the fourth quarter. On that play, Curry 
moved past Jason Stanicek as the school's all-time total offense leader. 

Durant's two passing touchdowns increased his season total to eight 
and established a UNC single-season freshman record. 

The Tar Heels overcame a slow start after East Carolina built a 10-0 
lead in the first quarter and was in position to add another score. 

East Carolina took the game's opening kickoff and marched 75 
yards in 10 plays. Quarterback David Garrard completed passes of 30 
and 12 yards and had a 14-yard run to set up the first score. On 2nd- 
and-goal from the 6, Garrard ran option right for one yard, but as he 
was being tackled he flipped the ball to Richard Alston who scored 
untouched from the 5. 

East Carolina tailbacks Leonard Henry and Art Brown pounded 
UNC on the Pirates' next possession. Henry gained 45 yards on six 
carries and Brown added a 26-yard run as the Pirates moved to the Tar 
Heel 4-yard line, before settling for a 31-yard field goal by Kevin 
Miller. 

Early in the second quarter, the 
Pirates were at the North Carolina 28 
when the momentum shifted to the Tar 
Heels. Garrard's pass hit the helmet of 
one of his blockers and UNC safety 
Dexter Reid intercepted at the 1 1-yard 
line. 

Nine plays and 89 yards later, it was 
10-7. Durant converted two third-down 
chances - on a 9-yard completion to 
Bosley Allen and a 15-yarder to Bailey 
- and put the Tar Heels on the score- 
board with a 29-yard strike to Chesley 
Borders. 

Curry led the Tar Heels to the end 
zone and the lead for good on UNC's 
first series of the third quarter. He also 
converted two third-down opportunities. 
On 2nd-and-goal from the Pirate 5, 
Curry's pass bounced off the hands of 
an ECU defender and ricocheted to tight 
Zach Hilton, who made a diving catch 
for the touchdown to put the Tar Heels 
ahead 14-10.

first play of the final quarter, Durant 
connected with Allen for 18 yards. 
Finally, on 3rd-and-12 from the ECU

lofted a pass to Sam Aiken for a touch- 
down. 

The play of the game came on the 
ensuing kickoff. The Tar Heels kicked 
short and Brown caught it at the ECU 
18. He raced through the North 
Carolina coverage and was going to 
score until Johnson sprinted from 
behind and punched the ball out of 
Brown's hands just one yard from the 
end zone. The ball rolled out of the end 
zone for a touchback. 

The Tar Heels extended their lead to 
1 1 on a 49-yard field goal by Jeff Reed 
with 2:48 to play. It equalled the 
longest field goal of his career. 

Garrard led the Pirates to a late

with 23 seconds to play, but Aiken 
clinched the win for UNC by recover- 
ins the onsides kick.

Sophomore tailback Andre' 
Williams rushed for a career- 
high 147 yards and a touchdown 
and safety Dexter Reid broke 
open a close game with a 67- 
yard interception return for a 
touchdown as the Tar Heels beat 
Virginia, 30-24. 

The win was Carolina's first over the Cavaliers since 1997 and was 
UNC's fourth in as many weeks. 

The game was an offensive showcase as the teams combined for 45 
first downs and nearly 900 yards of total offense. The offenses con- 
verted 15 of 32 third-down opportunities. 

Carolina had 1 1 rushing first downs and another 10 by pass, rushed 
for 234 yards, averaged 6.2 yards per play, punted just three times, 
and converted 9 of 16 third-down chances. The Tar Heels gained a 
season-high 477 yards of offense. 

Virginia had 15 passing first downs, averaged 5.5 yards per play 
and completed 33 of 55 passes for 334 yards and three touchdowns. 

For the second consecutive week, the Tar Heels gave up a late score 
and needed to recover a last-minute onsides kick to clinch the victory. 

Williams averaged 5.2 yards per rush en route to his 147-yard day. 
His previous career best was 68 yards at NC State on September 29. 
He had a 38-yard run, the longest of his career in the first quarter, but 
UNC fumbled two plays later at the Cavalier 20-yard line. 

Later in the opening quarter, freshman quarterback Darian Durant 
hit Chesley Borders on a slant and Borders raced 53 yards to the 
Virginia 7. Williams scored around the right corner on the next play. 

Michael Waddell blocked a David Greene field goal try on the fol- 
lowing series. Carolina then marched to the Virginia 24, but Durant's 
pass deflected off a receiver and was picked off at the 9-yard line. 

Virginia quarterback Matt Schaub and 
tailback Alvin Pearman then led the 
Cavaliers on a 10-play, 74-yard drive. 
Pearman opened the drive with a 24- 
yard run and Schaub capped it with a 7 
yard scoring pass to Tyree Foreman. 

Four plays later the Tar Heels went 
back into the lead on a 66-yard touch- 
down strike from Ronald Curry to Sam 
Aiken. It was the longest catch of 
Aiken's career. 

By halftime, the Tar Heels had 
amassed 312 yards, 100 more than 
Virginia, but held only a 17-10 advan- 
tage. 

The Cavaliers promptly opened the 
second half on a 13-play, 80-yard 
advance to tie the game at 17. Virginia 
converted four third-down chances, 
including Schaub's 4-yard touchdown 
pass to Michael McGrew with 9:40 left 
in the third quarter. 

Carolina regained the lead on a 22- 
yard field goal by Jeff Reed. Key

Dexter Reid intercepted this pass and returned it 67-yards for a 
touchdown to clinch a 30-24 victory over Virginia. 



plays on the scoring drive, which stalled at UVa 4, were a 24-yard 
catch by Kory Bailey and a 20-yard pass play to Bosley Allen. 

Reed extended UNC's lead to 23-17 a series later on a 38-yard field 
goal. 

Virginia then moved to the UNC 35- 
yard line in just three plays, setting up 
the biggest play of the day. Schaub 
attempted a pass to tight end Kase 
Luzar, but the ball bounced off Luzar's 
shoulder pads and into the air. Reid 
picked the ball out of the air and raced 
67 yards down the sideline for a touch- 
down. 

It was the second straight week Reid 
made a key interception. 

The Tar Heel defense then forced 
punts on each of Virginia's next three 
possessions. A fumble by Carolina with 
two minutes to play gave the Cavs one 
last hope, however. Schaub responded 
by throwing a 4-yard scoring pass to 
Billy McMullen with 1:01 left to cut 
UNC's lead to 30-24. 

Greene attempted an onsides kick, 
but Carolina cornerback Kevin Knight 
recovered the ball.

Darian Durant and Ronald 
Curry completed a combined 14 
of 18 passes for 206 yards and 
two touchdowns and Carolina 
held Heisman Trophy frontrun- 
ner Woodrow Dantzler to just 

1 6 total yards as the Tar Heels 
routed No. 13 Clemson before 
84,000 Homecoming fans in Death Valley. 

The victory equalled Carolina's largest-ever margin at Clemson. 
The Tar Heels also beat the Tigers by 35 points in 1970. Head coach 
John Bunting was a junior linebacker at UNC that year. 

Carolina became the first team in ACC history to open the season 0- 
3 and rebound with five straight wins. 

The loss equalled the second-worst ACC home loss in Clemson his- 
tory. 

Dantzler compiled more than 900 total offense yards in his previous 
two games. However, the Tar Heels held him to 43 rushing yards on 
12 carries and 10 of 25 passing for 73 yards, one interception and no 
touchdowns. Dantzler was lifted in the third quarter for Willie 
Simmons, but Simmons was just 4 for 21 for 71 yards and an inter- 
ception. 

Carolina held the Tigers to 209 yards, an average of 2.8 per play. 
Meanwhile, the Tar Heels compiled in excess of 400 total yards for 
the third consecutive game and did so in balanced fashion. 

The Tar Heels rushed for 219 yards and passed for 206. UNC com- 
pleted seven of 14 third-down chances, the third consecutive game in 
which Carolina converted at least half its third-down chances. 

Curry played his best game of the year, but was forced to leave with 
a pulled left hamstring in the third quarter. The Hampton. Va., senior 
gained 82 yards on 10 carries and completed three passes for 109 




Julius Peppers made an incredible interception in Carolina's 38-3 win 
at Clemson. The Tar Heel defense held Heisman Trophy candidate 
Woody Dantzler to just 116 total yards.

Durant was perfect in the air, as he completed all 1 1 of his pass 
attempts for 97 yards and a score. Durant also rushed for a pair of 
touchdowns. 

The Tar Heels led from start to finish, although the Tigers took the 
opening kickoff and moved to the UNC 29-yard line. However, safety 
Dexter Reid and defensive end Julius Peppers each sacked Dantzler 
and linebacker Quincy Monk added a hit behind the line of scrimmage 
and forced Clemson to punt. 

Later in the first quarter, Curry hit Sam Aiken on a quick slant for 
36 yards to the Tiger 9. Two plays later, Andre' Williams scored from 
four yards out for a 7-0 lead. 

Early in the second quarter, with UNC leading 7-3. Peppers made a 
spectacular play to set up Carolina's second touchdown. 

Peppers shed two blockers, jumped in the air to deflect Dantzler's 
pass and intercepted the ball at the Tiger 22-yard line after falling to 
his knees. 

On 3rd-and-10 following Peppers' interception. Durant hit Bosley 
Allen in the left corner of the end zone for 22 yards and a score. 

One series later, the Tar Heels struck again. Curry started the drive 
with an 1 1-yard run, converted a 3rd-and-4 with a 10-yard scramble 
and then went deep to Allen for a 48-yard touchdown. 

The 21 first-half points were already the most UNC had scored at 
Death Valley since 1980. 

The Tar Heels added touchdowns on their second and third posses- 
sions of the third quarter.

Joe Burns rushed for 198 
yards and a touchdown and 
Georgia Tech held the Tar Heels 
to just 13 rushing yards as the 
Yellow Jackets beat North 
Carolina, 28-21. 

The game was played on a 
Thursday evening in front of a 
national television audience on ESPN. 

Burns, who rushed for 126 yards and four scores against UNC in 
2000, carried 34 times en route to the seventh-largest yardage figure 
ever allowed by the Tar Heels. He scored the eventual winning touch- 
down in the fourth quarter on a 51-yard run down the right sideline. 

The Yellow Jackets made several big plays on special teams. Kelly 
Rhino set a Georgia Tech record with 1 1 1 yards on four punt returns. 

Freshman quarterback Darian Durant made his first career start in 
place of injured senior Ronald Curry. Durant completed 22 of 37 for 
286 yards. He threw for three touchdowns and was picked off once. 

That interception was the only turnover of the contest and led to a 
second quarter field goal. 

Durant connected with Bosley Allen nine times for 114 yards and 
threw for a pair of scores to Sam Aiken. It was the first time in nine 
games Durant started and played every snap at quarterback. Curry was 
unable to play due to a strained hamstring. 

The Yellow Jackets scored on the third play of the second quarter, 
but threatened the end zone in the opening quarter. Linebacker David 
Thornton stopped Burns on fourth-and-goal from the 1-foot line to 
keep the game scoreless. UNC could only manage two yards and 
punted from its own end zone. Tech started its next drive at the 
Carolina 31 and put the first points on the board four plays later. 
Quarterback George Godsey found Jonathan Smith on a quick slant 
and Smith split the UNC defense for a touchdown from 17 yards out. 

Durant promptly led the Tar Heels to a tying score. He had comple- 
tions for 18 yards to Allen and 17 yards to Kory Bailey to move the 
ball to the Tech 30-yard line, then found Bailey all alone in the end 
zone for the score. 

Durant was picked off on Carolina's next possession, but a sack by 
Ryan Sims helped limit the Yellow Jackets to a go-ahead field goal by 
Luke Manget. Mangel added a 25-yard field goal with two seconds 
left in the first half to give Tech a 1 3-7 advantage at the break. 

The Tar Heels took their only lead of the game on their initial pos- 
session of the second half. Thornton intercepted Godsey and returned 
the ball 19 yards to Tech's 41-yard line. Facing 3rd-and-12, Durant 
connected with Allen for 19 yards. Then on 3rd-and-9 from the 15, 
Durant fired toward the end zone. The ball was tipped by a Yellow 
Jacket defender, but Aiken grabbed the ball for a touchdown. 

Tech answered back on its next possession on an 18-play, 84-yard 
drive that consumed 8:47 off the clock. The Yellow Jackets converted 
each of its five third-down chances on the drive and scored on a 3- 
yard run off left tackle by Godsey. 

Midway through the final period Burns dashed around the right 
side, sprinted down the sideline and escaped from several would-be 
tacklers and scored on a 51 -yard run. A successful two-point conver- 
sion pass from Godsey to Burns gave Tech a 28-14 lead with 7:48 to 
play.

Wake Forest quarterback 
James MacPherson engineered 
scoring drives on five consecu- 
tive second half possessions to 
lead the Demon Deacons to a 
32-3 1 , come-from-behind win 
over North Carolina. 

MacPherson scored the go- 
ahead touchdown on a 1-yard run with 1:17 to play. That score gave 
the Deacons their only lead of the game. 

Carolina led 24-0 at halftime and 31-14 after three quarters, largely 
due to the play of freshman quarterback Darian Durant. Durant com- 
pleted 24 of 32 passes for 361 yards and four touchdowns. He set 
UNC single-game freshman records for pass completions, passing 
yards and passing touchdowns. 

The Tar Heels held the Deacons to 1 18 total offense yards in the 
first half. By contrast, Carolina compiled 338 yards, including 264 
passing by Durant. 

However, in the second half, Carolina committed two turnovers and 
allowed a safety. The Deacons gained 236 yards, 143 of which came 
on the ground. Wake Forest had 18 first downs in the final two peri- 
ods. 

Trailing 24-0 in the third. Wake Forest began its comeback by forc- 
ing a fumble by wide receiver Brandon Russell in UNC territory. The 
Deacs then got on the scoreboard on an 1 1-yard reverse run by wide- 
out John Stone. 

On its next possession. Wake Forest went 54 yards in seven plays, 
capped by another touchdown run on a reverse by receiver Fabian 
Davis. 

Carolina answered back for the only time in the half on its ensuing 
possession. Durant finished a 12-play, 80-yard march with a 12-yard 
touchdown pass to tight end Zach Hilton. 

The Deacons responded with an 80-yard touchdown drive of their 
own. Tarence Williams scored from three yards out to cut UNC's lead

Warren sent his snap over punter John Lafferty and out of the end 
zone. 

Wake Forest began at its own 41 following the safety and 
subsequent free kick. MacPherson marched the Deacs to the 
end zone in 10 plays, sneaking over the goal line for the go- 
ahead score with 77 seconds to play. 

Durant almost led the Tar Heels in range for a winning field 
goal. He completed his first three passes for 12, six and 15 
yards, to the Deacon 47-yard line. However, on the next play. 
Durant was sacked and stripped of the ball by Quintin 
Williams, and Caron Bracy recovered to clinch the win for the 
Deacons. 

Tarence Williams led Wake Forest with 29 rushes for 101 
yards. MacPherson was only 13 of 24 passing for 142 yards. 
but added 49 rushing yards on nine carries. 



Sam Aiken's 75-yard touchdown catch-and-run staked the Tar Heels to a 24-0 lead. 
However, the Demon Deacons roared back for an improbable 32-31 win.

North Carolina 52 
Duke 1 7 



■ November 17, 2001 
Kenan Stadium 
Chapel Hill, N.C. 



Senior quarterback Ronald 
Curry threw for 217 yards and 
three touchdowns and rushed for 
another score to lead Carolina to 
a 52-17 win over Duke. 

The win was Carolina's 12th 
straight over the Blue Devils. 
The 52-point outing, coupled 
with 59 points against Duke last year, marked the first time Carolina 
scored 50-plus points in consecutive years against an ACC rival. 

Curry, playing for the first time in three weeks because of a knee 
injury and a death in the family, was spectacular in front of a Senior 
Day crowd of 52,000. Curry had touchdown passes of 72, 18 and 30 
yards, and a dazzling, 1 1-yard touchdown run. 

Curry established Carolina's all-time passing yardage record and 
scored his 13th career rushing touchdown, another UNC record. He 
broke Jason Stanicek's career passing yardage record with 4,871 
yards. 

Curry started and shared time again with redshirt freshman Darian 
Durant, who completed 11 of 17 pass attempts for 151 yards and a 
touchdown. The touchdown was Durant's 17th scoring pass of the sea- 
son, third-best in Carolina history. 

The Tar Heels scored in all four quarters - the third time this year 
they had accomplished that feat - and rolled up a season-high 560 
yards. It was Carolina's highest yardage output since the 1995 game 
against Ohio. 

The Tar Heels held Duke to 23 1 yards, just 59 of which came on 
the ground. The Blue Devils also completed only 13 of 33 pass 
attempts. 

UNC wide receivers Sam Aiken, Bosley Allen and Kory Bailey 
combined for 16 catches for 296 yards and four scores. Aiken had his 
finest collegiate game with seven receptions for 156 yards and two 
scores. Allen added four receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown and 
Bailey had five catches for 66 yards and a touchdown. 

Freshman tailback Jacque Lewis had a game-high 94 rushing yards 
and a 31 -yard reception. He scored his first collegiate touchdown on a 
28-yard run. 

Carolina took a 14-0 lead in the first 1 1 minutes. The game was 
never closer than seven points from that point on. The Tar Heels got 
on the board on their second possession as Curry avoided a sack and 
hit Aiken deep down the left sideline. Aiken eluded several tackles, 
cut across the field and scored on a 72-yard play. 

Durant marched the Tar Heels to the end zone in just five plays in 
his first series behind center. He found Allen twice on the drive, once 
for 34 yards and then for 15 yards and a touchdown. 

Leading 14-7 in the second, Carolina got a 34-yard run by Willie 
Parker to set up first-and-goal. On third down from the 11, Curry 
scrambled to his left, cut through the heart of the Duke defense, 
dashed to his right, then split two defenders for a touchdown. 

Duke cut the lead to 24-17 early in the third quarter on an eight- 
play, 39-yard touchdown drive. 

Leading by just a touchdown, Carolina quickly put the game out of 
reach by scoring four touchdowns in their next five possessions over 
the ensuing 16 minutes. 

Curry got Carolina back on the board with an 18-yard strike to

Kenan Stadium 


Chapel Hill, 


N.C. 



Sophomore tailback Willie 
Parker rushed for 82 yards, 
including 75 in the second half. 
and scored a key third quarter 
touchdown to lift the Tar Heels 
to a 19-10 win over SMU. 

The win was Carolina's sev- 
enth of the season and made the 
Tar Heels bowl eligible. Immediately upon the conclusion of the 
game, UNC accepted a bid to play in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl. 

The SMU game had been re-scheduled from September 15th. 

Parker was the offensive spark who broke open a 10-7 game mid- 
way through the second half. First, he raced 23 yards to the SMU 4- 
yard line with a run around left end on a trick play. Then he scored 
from two yards out to give Carolina a 16-7 lead. On the Tar Heels' 
next possession, Parker carried the ball seven times for 47 yards to set 
up a 32-yard field goal by Jeff Reed. The kick gave Carolina a 19-10 
advantage with 4:23 to play in the game. 

The Tar Heels amassed 374 total offense yards, the seventh time in 
the last nine games UNC gained at least 300 yards. 

Defensively, Carolina yielded 298 yards and did not force a 
turnover, but gave up just one touchdown. That score came after a 
UNC turnover deep in its own territory. It was the seventh time this 
season Carolina allowed under 300 yards of total offense. 

UNC's defense allowed only 19 yards by the Mustangs on their first 
two possessions, setting up the first score of the game. That came on a 
43-yard touchdown pass from Curry to Chesley Borders with 4:34 left 
in the opening quarter. 

Neither team threatened to score again in the first half, but the Tar 
Heels committed a costly mistake to open the second half. Kevin 
Knight fumbled the opening 
kickoff of the third quarter and 
the ball was recovered by SMU 
at the 12-yard line. ShanDerrick 
Charles dashed through the 
UNC defense for a touchdown 
on the next play to knot the 
game at 7-7. 

UNC began its go-ahead scor- 
ing drive at the SMU 48-yard 
line, but committed an offensive 
pass interference penalty to push 
the ball back to its 38-yard line. 
Durant completed two passes 
and rushed for 14 yards, but the 
drive stalled at the 2-yard line. 
Reed gave Carolina the lead for 
good with a 19-yard field goal. 

Knight made up for his earlier 
mistake by forcing an SMU punt 
with a 3-yard tackle for loss. 
Curry was back at quarterback 
on Carolina's next possession 
and marched the Tar Heels to

from center, discreetly handed the ball to Parker and faked like he was 
running the ball to his right. Instead, Parker sprinted around the left 
end and went for 23 yards before being knocked out of bounds at the 
4-yard line. Two plays later, Parker scored from the two, but Jeff Reed 

missed the extra point. 

A 20-yard field goal by Jacob

■ December 31, 2001 



Georgia Dome 
Atlanta, Ga. 
TV: ESPN 



Willie Parker rushed for 131 
yards and Ryan Sims led a spir- 
ited defensive effort as North 
Carolina won its fifth consecu- 
tive postseason bowl appearance 
with a 16-10 victory over 
Auburn in the Chick-fil-A Peach 
Bowl. The win capped off the 
greatest turnaround in school history as Carolina completed the season 
by winning eight of its last 10 games after starting 0-3. 

Parker, who was starting his first game since September, was spec- 
tacular, scoring on a 10-yard run in the first quarter and setting up a 
second-quarter field goal with a 43-yard dash. Parker had the fifth- 
best rushing day in UNC bowl history and it was the 1 1th time a Tar 
Heel had rushed for more than 100 yards in a bowl game. 

Parker's touchdown was set up by Carolina's defense, which 
allowed just 32 total rushing yards and shutout Auburn for three quar- 
ters. In the first quarter, cornerback Michael Waddell forced a fumble 
at the Auburn 26-yard line that defensive end Joey Evans picked up 
and rumbled to the Auburn 8-yard line. Two plays later, Parker's 
touchdown gave Carolina a 7-0 lead. 

Late in the second quarter, Parker jump-started the UNC offense 
again with a 43-yard run from the Carolina 1 1 to the Auburn 46-yard 
line. On third down, quarterback Darian Durant completed a short 
pass to Sam Aiken who zig zagged his way through the Tiger defense 
to the 3-yard line, setting up Jeff Reed's 22-yard field goal and giving 
Carolina a 10-0 halftime lead. 

Curry, who was named the game's Offensive MVP, scored on an 
incredible touchdown run in the third quarter to give Carolina a 16-0 
advantage. On a broken play, Curry avoided several Tiger tacklers, 
cut back across the Auburn defense and sprinted 62 yards to the end 
zone. It was the longest touchdown run of Curry's 
career. His MVP honor was the second of his career 
after receiving the same distinction as a freshman in the 
1998 Las Vegas Bowl. 

Defensively, Carolina came up with several big plays 
throughout the game and held off a furious Auburn 
comeback in the fourth quarter. Sims, the Defensive 
MVP. had six tackles, including two sacks and was con- 
stantly disrupting the Auburn backfield. 

Auburn's only sustained scoring drive occurred early 
in the fourth quarter when the Tigers drove the ball to the 
UNC 10-yard line. However, on third and two. Auburn 
quarterback Jason Campbell was flushed out of the 
pocked by Anthony Perkins before David Thornton 
sacked him for a 7-yard loss. The Tigers' David Duval 
then kicked a 34-yard field goal to make the score 16-3. 

The Tigers put together another drive two possessions 
later, moving the ball from their own 26-yard line to the 
Carolina 19-yard line. However, on second down from 
the 19, Auburn quarterback Daniel Cobb's pass was inter- 
cepted by Michael Waddell at the UNC 1 1 -yard line. 

With under two minutes to play in the game and the 
Tar Heels comfortably ahead. Auburn recovered 
Carolina's fumbled punt attempt at the UNC 20-yard line
